Favorite Thanksgiving books

My friend Sherry asked for this list. It is primarily geared to a young child's taste.

  • Off to Plymouth Rock by Dandi Mackall and Gene Barretta
  • Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving by Eric Metaxas and Shannon Stirnweis - most favorite
  • Thanksgiving Mice! by Bethany Roberts and Doug Cushman
  • N.C. Wyeth's Pilgrims text by Robert San Souci - beautiful illustrations!
  • Molly's pilgrim by Barbara Cohen and Daniel Mark Duffy

We also are reading A Journey to the New World: The Diary of Remember Patience Whipple, Mayflower, 1620, part of the Dear America series. The book is a bit difficult for my children to follow, but they loved the video Dear America: Journey to the New World which is based on the book.

We're reading Squanto today in our homeschool activities. I was thrilled when I got it on sale at Lifeway for $5 the other day!
