Yesterday, I posted about the song "Over the River and Through the Wood" and now, here is a beautifully illustrated version of the book by L. Maria Child and Matt Tavares that I found on Amazon.com. If you follow this Amazon link and then click on the book you can view the pages inside!
Here is one that Autumn and I like very much. And even though she is older now, we still grab it off the shelf to read it every week before Thanksgiving. The Night Before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing, and Illustrated by Tammie Lyon. You can see it here at Amazon.com. The book is all about the hustle and bustle that accompanies Thanksgiving for the family in the book. They bake, watch a bit of the Thanksgiving Day Parade, play with their cousins and finally eat.
Here's another cute one for Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving Is For Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland and Illustrated by Sonja Lamut
And finally, this is one of my favorite books for the fall and winter season. It's not necessarily about Thanksgiving but it does make a person thankful for the folks who have braved the prairies back in the 1800s. We are here because of their hard work and perseverance.
It is a My First Little House Book called Winter Days in the Big Woods. It was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Illustrated by Renee Graef.
You can take a sneak peek here on Amazon.
These are just a few of my favorite books to read during the time before Thanksgiving and I hope you enjoy them too! I'm sure there are many many more that I haven't discovered yet!
