I really do like Thanksgiving so much. If I was not so obsessed with Christmas, it would definitely be my favorite. It is a happy time of year where you celebrate all the wonderful things we have in our lives. What is not to love? Here are 12 of my favorite Thanksgiving books. They are a perfect way to start some deep discussions about what your students and/or children are thankful for this Thanksgiving.
