About This Book
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.
Giving Thanks is a special children's version of the Thanksgiving Address, a message of gratitude that originated with the Native people of upstate New York and Canada and that is still spoken at ceremonial gatherings held by the Iroquois, or Six Nations.
