    The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dalgliesh is one of our favorites.

    There’s also Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving.



    This is not about the first Thanksgiving, but is a tradition with us. A Thanksgiving Story In Vermont-1852, by Jeff Barth. “Experience life in rural Vermont as you travel with the Bartons through an unexpected blizzard to visit Grandpa and Grandma in Stowe on Thanksgiving Day, 1852. A surprising guide helps to bring them safely to their destination.”


    Oh, and one more: An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving, by Louisa May Alcott. Maybe not appealing because it’s about girls, but hilarious.


    The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dalgliesh is the one I was going to recommend also!  We are going to start reading it in about a week. 

    I would be interested to hear what others say!


    We do something similar to Advent with Thanksgiving where we read a little day from various books.  We have a calendar that I made out of felt with paper corn cobs in each pocket.  Each corn cob has a Bible verse on it.  We take them out and read the verse each day and then each person writes on a card something they are thankful for (for 21 days) and we put those in the pockets.  I keep the cards every year.  It’s fun to go back and see what people were thankful for (especially the little ones!).  

    I recommend the above books as well.  We’ve really liked: this resource as well.  It works for all ages.

    I also really like A 30 day Thanksgiving Journal by Sheri Graham.
