These are the best Thanksgiving books for children! Every holiday we like to get our children ready by reading a variety of fun, age appropriate children’s holiday books.
We are extremely lucky, but our kids really enjoy books and reading – and we love it too! They especially love holiday themed books of all kinds, so I thought it might be fun to round up some of the very best Thanksgiving books for the upcoming holiday. Our kids really enjoyed these and can’t wait to reread them year after year. We hope you enjoy them as a family too.
