Thanksgiving Picture Books (2)


Here are some Thanksgiving reads that I've read this year. I'm still working on updating the collection, so if you have a favorite, please let me know.

I would really love #OwnVoices stories. 

Falling for Autumn: Pete the Cat
Pete the Cat isn't sure about autumn, but he discovers all there is to love about the fall. This doesn't seem like a Thanksgiving book until the end of the book. But they celebrate fall with a feast which includes a cornucopia of all the fall items Pete has collected during his aventures.

This is not a picture book, but I'm including it because it has great information about the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, and that first Thanksgiving. This nonfiction book (225 pages) doesn't pull any punches about racism in early America. I really enjoyed reading about the history - and what was different than we were taught in school. Lots of pictures and facts make it easy to keep turning the pages of this book. I'm looking forward to more books in this series.
