Thanksgiving Books

Some of our favorite Thanksgiving books:

Fat Chance Thanksgiving by: Patricia Lakin
A girl wants to have a big Thanksgiving feast, but her mom says there is a fat chance of that happening.


This is the Turkey by: Abby Levine
This book will bring a smile to your face.


Franklin's Thanksgiving by: Paulette Bourgeois
Franklin's grandparents can't make it to his house for Thanksgiving, and he thinks he will not have any guests. But Franklin is in for a surprise on Thanksgiving.


Arthur's Thanksgiving by: Marc Brown
Arthur's class is putting on a Thanksgiving play and no one wants to be the turkey. What will Arthur do?
Molly's Pilgrim by: Barbara Cohen

How Many Days to America? A Thanksgiving Story by: Eve Bunting
A story about a family who is forced to flee their home, and when they arrive in America it is Thanksgiving.



The Squirrels' Thanksgiving by: Steven Kroll
This is one of our favorites. The squirrel family spends Thanksgiving with their aunt and uncle and cousins. When the cousins misbehave it almost ruins Thanksgiving.



Oh, What a Thanksgiving! by: Steven Kroll
We either got this book from Mom or from a garage sale. It is from 1988 and may be hard to find. We love it.
A boy is disappointed in his Thanksgiving and thinks it would have been much more exciting to be at the first Thanksgiving.
