I love this time of the year because the holidays are coming up. There are some great Thanksgiving picture books as well as chapter books to read with your children. There are some great titles here, it is meant to be a buffet of books. Pick and choose which books would be best to read in your homeschool. If there are certain books you don’t get to, they’ll be first on your list next year.
Learn about the Pilgrims, Native Indians, and the Mayflower. This is a great time to teach your children the meaning of Thanksgiving and follow it up with some fun activities.

Thanksgiving Picture Books and Chapter Books
We love picture books no matter what the age of your child, there are some really great classics that we have to read every year, my favorite is Cranberry Thanksgiving. There’s also a Cranberry Christmas book too!
Each book should help the child see the importance of the holiday and how we can all come together with a feeling of gratitude. It’ s the perfect time to see how we can serve others or show our appreciation for those who are in our lives or our community.
Thanksgiving Chapter Books
Older kids will can go even deeper and learn about Thanksgiving with these chapter books. I love a good historical fiction book that pulls you into the story so you can see what life was like at the time.
