Thanksgiving Favorites to Share!

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. .

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.

Cranberry Thanksgiving, by Wende and Harry Devlin.

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