Besides being (for many) the best meal of the year, Thanksgiving brings with it a season for expressing gratitude, gathering with family and friends and focusing on our blessings. Whether you celebrate with turkey or duck, remember the Mayflower pilgrims or more recent immigrants who came to America in search of freedom, or eat with family or friends, Thanksgiving holds a special significance for many. To get you in the mood, we've compiled a list of the best kids books about Thanksgiving. Because Thanksgiving has so many aspects—historical and modern—we've included something for everyone on our list of the best thanksgiving books, ranging from silly parody books like "'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving" to beautifully illustrated stories of historical figures who made Thanksgiving a reality like "Thank You, Sarah". There are some popular, contemporary titles such as "Pete the Cat: The First Thanksgiving" or #1 New York Times Bestseller "Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks" as well as more classic tales such as Caldecott-Honor winning "The Thanksgiving Story". This list includes board, picture and chapter books. Thanksgiving board books are typically best for babies and toddlers. If you're looking for Thanksgiving stories for toddlers and early elementary students, picture books are your best best. Chapter books are generally ideal for upper elementary and middle school readers, but are also great for adults to read aloud to younger ages or the whole family at once! You can scroll through all age groups simultaneously, or filter to a single type of books to help you find the best books for your family more quickly. And now, without further ado, enjoy the list! We're grateful for these books and hope you will be too—feel free to let us know if there are any you think deserve to make the list!
