Over the years our family has used books to help teach everything from history, holidays, experiences (like the first day of school or a dentist visit!) and learning how to understand and deal with emotions. Below I’ve put together a great list of Thanksgiving themed books for you! I’ve found so many times that favorite storybook characters can sometimes reach my kids when I can’t seem to figure out how!
These are all geared towards primary readers but can be used for preschool and lower elementary age reading.
