Thanksgiving Books

ThanksgivingaspiredlivingWith Thanksgiving  around the corner and I thought you might enjoy a quick list of great books to enjoy with your family. These are Thanksgiving books that our family enjoys each year and that we have collected over the years.

Thank You, Sarah is a picture book to be enjoyed by the whole family but especially the younger set! It discusses how a woman named Sarah pushed to make Thanksgiving a National holiday. This is a perennial favorite around here.


The Thanksgiving Story is the story of Thanksgiving by Dalgleish the author of The Courage of Sarah Noble. This is a picture book and it is well suited for a quick family read aloud or for your Elementary Aged children to read.
Stories of the Pilgrims (Unabridged Start Publishing LLC) details the story of the Pilgrims from England to Holland and finally to America. I learned a lot about the actual voyage of the Pilgrims that I was unaware of. Including the fact that the Mayflower was not the first ship they tried to use and that they fled to Holland first and then to America. It is a great book and it is well suited for Middle Schoolers or young high schoolers to read on their own or as a family read aloud.

Of Plymouth Plantation (Dover Books on Americana) is the Diary of William Bradford as they were starting the Plymouth Plantation. Although we have this book we have not yet read it. This book is well suited for the High School Students in your home.

 

An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving is one of the most famous Thanksgiving stoires and it happens to be written by Louisa May Alcot the author of Little Women. It is set in rural New Hampshire in the 1800s. As the Thanksgiving Day begins, the Bassetts must leave on an emergency and the two oldest children are left in charge of the household.

  1. hanks for sharing. We are currently wrapping up our unit study on the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Native Americans. That Stories of the Pilgrims book looks very interesting. I will ask my oldest if she wants to get the kindle version for her own personal read. We actually enjoyed the historical fiction the Dear America and My Name is America series on Remember Patience Whipple and Jonathan Pierce. Eventually I will be publishing a blog post with all that we did for this unit. But I wanted to say thanks for sharing

  3. We’re not Americans but my children have enjoyed the Dalgliesh & Pumphrey titles. I’ll have to have a look for An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving. We have a Christmas story she wrote, The Quiet Little Woman, which is lovely.

  4. Love the suggestions! We have and enjoy a few of them. We have been studying American History this year, and covered the Pilgrims just a month or so ago, so we didn’t spend as much time talking about them during Thanksgiving this year. I’ll have to remember your other suggestions for next year!
