Cute book to read to class during thanksgiving time. Shows kids what thanksgiving is all about and how to be thankful for what you have.
This is age appropriate (young children) and the children are thankful for parents, grandparents, teachers... different people in their lives. It is not about the history of Thanksgiving. It is about giving Thanks. It is great for library reading time too, in addition to a book with a little history of Thanksgiving.
