November is picture book month! Three for Thursday!

November is picture book month!

Happy Thanksgiving! For the fourth Thursday in November, I will review three Thanksgiving picture books that are available in Infosoup! Holiday “classics” are some of the most wonderful kinds of picture books. They warm the heart and are fun to pull out, dust off, and familiarize yourself with again when their season arrives!

Next Thursday, December 1, I will add one more to make a baker’s dozen!

The Thankful Book Todd Parr 2012

Every day we can remember to be thankful and this sweet book gives several reasons why!

Thanksgiving is Here! Diane Goode 2003

This book encapsulates the joy of gathering with a huge family for the Thanksgiving holiday. The illustrations show the hustle and bustle of many people joining each other and ends with grandmother and grandfather being satisfied and exhausted from a long, special day of entertaining.
