Thanksgiving Titles

It's not too late to enjoy some Thanksgiving reading with your family!  Here's a couple more favorites for you to explore together.

Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving , by Eric Metaxas. Published by Thomas Nelson.

This entertaining and historical story shows that the actual hero of the first Thanksgiving was neither white nor Indian, but God. In 1608, English traders came to Massachusetts and captured a 12-year-old Indian, Squanto, and sold him into slavery. He was raised by Christians and taught faith in God. Ten years later he was sent home to America. Upon arrival, he learned an epidemic had wiped out his entire village. But God had plans for Squanto. God delivered a Thanksgiving miracle: An English-speaking Indian living in the exact place where the Pilgrims land in a strange new world. Recommended for ages 5 to 10.

Younger Students:

Cranberry Thanksgiving, by Wende and Harry Devlin. Published by Aladdin Paperbacks.

A mystery to solve, Thanksgiving dinner, and a recipe for Cranberry bread - all included in this classic holiday tale for the whole family. Like Goody O’Grumpity, this book will have your family in the kitchen again! Ages 4 and up.

Older Students:

Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan, edited by Edward Hazelbaker. Published by Bridge-Logos Publishing.

The study of the American Pilgrims provides a wonderful opportunity for older students to read Pilgrim’s Progress. This edition is one that is written in modern English and is reader-friendly, while also providing Bunyan‘s annotations in the text. Ages 10 and up.
