Comments:

It can be very frustrating to try to find a Thanksgiving book that is a good choice for Toddler Time and/or Preschool Storytime.  Hurray!  I was thrilled to discover this one!

While it is a Thanksgiving book, it is also a book about thankfulness.  It talks about seasonal reasons the kids are grateful (turkey, pie, golden leaves) and everyday things like school, swings, slides, puppies, puddles and MOST of all, the family they love.

The book has a brief rhyming text and large striking illustrations that will be easily visible at Storytime.

I am sooo thankful for Thanks for Thanksgiving!

Synopsis:

Maggie hosts a pajama party at which Clement, Alan Alexander, and Jean play a variety of fun games, tire themselves, and drift off to sleep, but not before sharing their gratitude.

Comments:

I had to tell all of you about this book because I loved it so much!  I thought the illustrations (and text) were charming.  I don’t have reason to test this out, but I think I could read it as a bedtime story every night for 2+ years and STILL like it.

Storytime themes:  bedtime, friends, stuffed animals, thankfulness.
