Kids’ Books About Thanksgiving

There are so many reasons why reading to your child is good for them. It helps to develop their vocabulary and understanding of grammar, encourages them to use their imagination, and it fosters a love of learning.

Reading also helps children to make connections between the world around them and the stories they hear. As they listen to you read, they begin to see how the characters in the book are feeling and how they might react in similar situations.

Start off the celebrations with some fun Thanksgiving books:

Below are some of the top Thanksgiving books for kids!

Turkey Trouble – If you’ve never read this book, you have to add it to your holiday collection! It’s so cute and fun and kids just love it! Follow the turkey around the farm as he disguises himself as different animals so the farmer doesn’t catch him for Thanksgiving dinner!

How To Catch A Turkey – Kids who love the How To Catch books will want to see all the crazy contraptions kids make to try to catch a turkey loose at the school!

Pete The Cat: The First Thanksgiving -Every Pete the Cat book is fantastic, but this one takes it up a notch with flaps for the kids to open. It’s a great way to get the kids excited about reading and Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Crafts For Kids

Crafts are a great way for children to express their creativity and explore their imaginations. But crafts can also be beneficial for children’s cognitive and physical development.

For example, gluing paper together can help children develop fine motor skills, and painting can help them improve their hand-eye coordination.

In addition, crafts can help children develop problem-solving skills as they figure out how to create the objects they have in mind. And as they work on projects, children learn to follow instructions and to pay attention to detail.

So in addition to being fun, crafts can also be an important part of children’s development! Why not add in even more crafts with these ideas:
