Happy November! Happy Thanksgiving month! And of course, happy month long reminder to be extra grateful for allll the things! I know the holidays can be a little extra stressful, so I think it’s even more important to count our blessing this time of year. This includes the opportunity to read with our children and pass along our values. I love the idea of theming books to match the holiday for our children! So today, I’ve rounded up 97 Children’s Thanksgiving Books to read together! There is something for everyone from board books for our babies, to a little harder reading level for preschoolers and elementary school aged kids like first graders and beyond! I also tried to keep this Thanksgiving reading list versatile, so we have books on the story of Thanksgiving, books on gratitude, more general fall books, and loads of funny books to get your children engaged in reading!
