Picture Books for Thanksgiving and Families


The Thankful Book by Todd Parr
Easy-to-read text encourages the reader to find something every day for which to be thankful, from underwear that is just the right size to birthday cakes and the wishes they bring.



One Family by George Shannon

A family can be many things, in this story that introduces numbered groups from one to ten.


Over the River and Through the Wood

by Lydia Child, illustrated by Emma Randall

Follows the story of a single tree through the changing of the seasons from fall to winter, as people, animals, and vehicles pass in front of the tree, celebrating holidays, playing in the leaves, and building nests.


Early Literacy Tip

Cognition and General Knowledge - The world we live in—Physical and Social 

          Thanksgiving is a sweet time to cook with your child, such as letting them pour in the (premeasured) flour or to stir the cake batter or spoon the cookie dough onto the cookie pan, something that is appropriate to their age and ability. When you cook with your child, talk about what you are doing to help him or her to understand all the steps involved.  Such experiences serve children well when they try to understand the world around them.    And, these time make for marvelous memories to cherish, too.
