Books for Giving Thanks
Based on the Thanksgiving Address of the Iroquois people, the words in this read-aloud book reflect the Native American tradition of greeting the world each morning by giving thanks to all living things.
Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks; the question is, where to begin? From the turkey on the table to warm, cozy cuddles, life is full of small things and bigger pleasures. But what is most important is being able to share them with family!
Great-Aunt Myra is coming to visit, and Amelia Bedelia, the ever literal-minded housekeeper, is eager to please. But she creates frantic, funny situations when she's told to strip the sheets, pare the vegetables, separate the eggs, and make a jelly roll!
Clifford is always ready to help his friends on Birdwell Island . . . sometimes in rather unusual ways!
This delightful book lets children count their blessings. Everything from food to family to being able to swim to the stars in the sky is a blessing and can be counted. The last spread is a wipe off page on which children can record the things that they are grateful for themselves. Full color. Consumable.
