Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. I always look forward to spending time feasting with family and giving thanks for all of our many blessings.
As I got out our basket of Thanksgiving books, I thought I would share some of our favorites. Many of these can probably be found through your local library. Click on the book photo to get a preview of each book on Amazon.
Thanksgiving Book List
This first book, Thanksgiving: A Time to Remember, has been a family favorite for quite a few years now. It is so beautifully done and also includes a CD of instrumental music. The readings about Thanksgiving are so nice to read together during the month.
It’s always so nice to have Thanksgiving music playing during the month of November. The two CD’s below are ones we have really enjoyed.
Free Thanksgiving Resources
- Here’s a free e-book from Marilyn Moll of The Urban Homemaker, called Traditional Thanksgiving: Stress Free Plans and Easy Recipes for Busy Moms. It’s full of recipes and tips, including several recipes for using up leftover turkey.
- Make a beautiful “Thankful Tree.” There are two versions that I like: This one by Simply Vintage Girl is beautiful! This one by Playful Learning is geared toward children, and is probably what I will end up with this year. 🙂 I think the younger children would probably really enjoy doing this activity.
- Lots of preschool Thanksgiving activities at this link, including some cute hand print turkeys.
- Carolyn Mahaney’s Turkey Recipe. At the bottom of this post there is also a link to a PDF containing recipes for all the favorite side dishes her family makes. Makes me hungry just reading it. 🙂
