Thanksgiving Picture Book Round Up

Here are some Thanksgiving reads - some for review and some for updating our collection. We don't have a lot of Thanksgiving picture books and the ones we have are a little bit older.

 I'm on the hunt for more, so if you have a favorite, please, leave me a comment!

Five Little Thank-Yous

A sweet board book about 5 things that make us Thankful for - perfect for sharing with little ones.
You can count your happy thoughts on one hand.
The artwork is charming.

Gobble Up, Snoopy! (Peanuts)
Gobble Up Snoopy
Snoopy is thankful for - his food dish being filled up. So he pens a thank you note to his food dish. It's funny and sweet and all about food and friendship. 

A Turkey for Thanksgiving
Turkey for Thanksgiving
This one is a much older story, which my boss urged me to read, about a group of friends getting together to share Thanksgiving dinner. But the hostess desperately wants a turkey for the table and her husband promises to track one down - which he does with a little help from his friends. 

While the premise seems a bit scary, this is a lovely book about friendship, food, and being together.

How to Catch a Turkey
When a turkey hears about a show, he get stage fright. He leads the entire school on a chase - from the coach to the principle. He goes from science class to the library to the recess yard - all before he mistakenly makes he way back to the stage where he'll have to face his fear. 

A cute story about facing your fears with fun illustrations.

The members of the Fright Club are back and gathering for their Thanksgiving feast. They have their own way of doing things, but when Vladimir's family shows up, they take over the meal preparation. And it goes badly. Thanksgiving is ruined. 

A great story about expectations, family, and working together to make a memorable day.

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks
Duck and Hippo decide to host an old fashioned Thanksgiving Feast. Hippo can't wait to have all the trimmings! He works hard baking, but his friends are late. When they show up, they all have a dish to add to the table. But it's not the dishes at a typical Thanksgiving Feast...

A sweet story about friendship, being different, and sharing.
