Thanksgiving Unit For Kids
Reading aloud to children is important because it helps them learn many things! One great thing kids can learn from hearing stories is a larger vocabulary. Reading together also allows the reader to be a role model for the child and show that reading is fun. It can encourage a love of books too!
Because of these reasons and more, we always recommend starting a new theme with books. Grab these from the library or buy them on Amazon to add to your home collection!
Below are some of the top Thanksgiving books for kids!
