My children are all grown up but we'll all spend hours reading over the holidays. I'll probably reread The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo before the movie comes out.

Your topic caught my eye. Great suggestions. I will have to check them out. I found a real unusual book to review. Great time to be thanksful! Thanks for the suggestions!

Kenda Turner said...

Thanks for the suggestions, Carla. I think reading a couple of these to the little ones gathered with us on Thanksgiving Day would make a good activity. I'll make a note to check them out :-)

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but ever since I spent one in the US, we've cooked up a feast every November anyway!

Love this post and so glad I found it! I've been looking for Thanksgiving picture books! Which one is your favorite?

Michelle Teacress said...

I was just at the bookstore today, and felt disappointed at the selection of Thanksgiving books. Thanks for the list. :)

Carla said...

Susan, That sounds like fun!

Patricia, Some I've read; some I haven't...they all look great, though!

Kenda, I think reading is great for any occasion!

Amie, Any excuse to party, right?!

Susanna, Probably either 1 or 4, but I've really enjoyed all that I've looked at!

Michelle, I think that most holidays could use more books, but they're a hard sell because they tend to be seasonal!
