Children's Book Reviews

Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate with families and appreciate the uniqueness in each of us. It is also the perfect time to curl up by the fire with a good book to help the family celebrate.

The Night Before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing and Tammie Lyon is a twist on the Christmas classic. You can't miss with the terrific rhyme: "T'was the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the nation families got ready for the great celebration." This book is part of a series that appeals to kids and adults.



Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland and Sonja Lamut is a charmingly illustrated book that reminds us to appreciate and celebrate all the joys in our lives. The children in the book reflect the diversity of America. This is a perfect book selection to share with a classroom.



Molly's Pilgrim by Barbara Cohen is a chapter book that celebrates the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Molly is a Jewish Russian immigrant and her mother's interpretation of the word pilgrim causes Molly great embarrassment, but ultimately enlightens her classmates and promotes understanding. Molly's Pilgrim is a thought provoking book that can encourage discussions of religious freedom, tolerance, and bullying.

Happy Thanksgiving!
