Favorite Thanksgiving Books for Families

During the month of November I intentionally share books highlighting the story of Thanksgiving with my children. On a table the books are displayed for leisurely perusing during free time. In the afternoon, during the week, we sit together to read through one of the books, several of which only take a few minutes.
