30 Thanksgiving Books for Kids


November is upon us and it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving! We always make a trip to the library to fill our book baskets with great reads for each season and holiday. Do you have that tradition in your family, too?

{Confession: Lately we’ve been making use of Amazon for books — either Kindle versions or delivered in two days with Prime — because it seems that our library fines can sometimes be more than the purchase cost of a book! You can get a free reading app if you don’t actually have a Kindle. You can also try Prime for free for 30 days to get free two-day shipping.}

Either way, here is a list of 30 great Thanksgiving books for kids to read this month.

I'm a reader, writer, dreamer, wife, and homeschooling mom of 3 girls. We take a relaxed, eclectic, Charlotte Mason-leaning, Montessori-ish, literature-rich, delight-directed, almost unschooling-at-times approach to learning. Lots of unit studies, field trips, and lapbooks, too. I like to blog about our learning adventures (plus faith and encouragement) at Embracing Destiny.
