Is there ever a good time NOT to read a great picture book? I didn’t think so. Today I’m sharing some of our family’s favorite Thanksgiving picture books and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays because it’s all about the sharing of food and family without the expense and pressure of finding perfect gifts. I love to stack some favorite Thanksgiving picture books by the fireplace to grab on chilly November mornings.
