Why I enjoyed the Thanksgiving Is For Giving Thanks book

  • I personally enjoy the Thanksgiving Is For Giving Thanks book because it has been a part of our family’s Thanksgiving traditions for years now (as well as being a book I read every year in the classroom). Through its bright illustrations and simple wording the Thanksgiving Is For Giving Thanks book expresses the true meaning of Thanksgiving.  It reminds my children why we celebrate this time of year. Every year we read this book, it enables my family to take time to reflect upon all we are thankful for. As my children grow and mature each year, it is fun to hear how their responses change and to see how they grasp the concept of thankfulness more fully.  My son is now able to read this book to us and that is something I am thankful for this year.
