Thanksgiving books for Children!

Hello Bookworms!!,
        Its Thanksgiving Eve and while you're preparing a huge meal, the kids will need something to entertain them! How about some precious Thanksgiving/Harvest stories especially for kids?

The Pumpkin Patch Parable - Liz Curtis Higgs

       This charming story for children illustrates how a loving farmer can turn a simple pumpkin into a simply glorious sight. In the same way, God's transforming love can fill each of our hearts with joy and light. Liz Curtis Higgs created this parable as a way to share the Good News with her own precious children each harvest season . . . and now with children everywhere.

      Liz Curtis Higgs is a God-gifted author and I have reviewed several of her books here on See Lizzie Read. I am sure that this book will entertain your children and become an instant classic in your home!

One Is A Feast for Mouse: A Thanksgiving Tale - Judy Cox

     The Thanksgiving feast is over. Mouse spots one pea, which is quite enough for one mouse, but he keeps adding other tidbits. Then Cat sees him, in a story about giving thanks for the little things.

     Children love stories with adorable animal characters. This story about a mouse who wants to feast for thanksgiving is sure to entertain your children and make them laugh.

Arthur's Thanksgiving (Arthur Adventure Series)

     Arthur has been picked to direct his school's Thanksgiving play-and cast the roles. But all his friends want to be star, and no one wants to play the Turkey! What will Arthur do?

     Arthur is a beloved character that I grew up with as a child. I loved Arthur and would watch the cartoon all the time! Introduce the next generation to this wonderful character with Arthur's Thanksgiving!

The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin
     The Bear family hopes to win the blue ribbon for their entry in the pumpkin contest during the annual Bear Country Thanksgiving Festival, but the lesson they gain is much more important: a new appreciation of the true spirit of the holiday and all they have to be thankful for.

     As a child my parents would always give me Berenstain Bears books and movies and I absolutely loved them! The colorful stories coupled with the values that they can teach your children make "The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin" or any other Berenstain Bears book well worth your time and money!

There you have it! Four books for thanksgiving that are sure to charm your children and remind everyone that there's more to Thanksgiving than the food!

Are there any books that you share with your children on Thanksgiving that you woul love for others to know about? Leave a comment! :)

Until Next Time and Happy Thanksgiving!,
