Grateful for great books!
Lately, I spent some time reviewing my collection of Thanksgiving books. Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays. Here's why:
- families get together
- there is no gift giving expectation
- fantastic fall weather
- delicious food
The book Thanks for Thanksgiving by Heather Patterson really captures the beauty of Thanksgiving, which is really just being mindful of all simple things that bring us pleasure at this wonderful time of year.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
Thanks for the warm fall sun.
Thanks for the outdoor fun.
Thanks for the blue fall sky
and the sound of the birds' good-bye.
Thanks for the golden trees.
Thanks for the crunch of leaves.
Borrow it from your local public library and share it with your child today :)
Does anyone have any other great suggestions for Thanksgiving books?
