Everyone knows that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks - the question is, where to begin? From the turkey on the table to warm, cozy cuddles, life is full of small things and bigger pleasures. But what is most important is being able to share them with family!
Julie Markes reminds kids and adults alike about the little details that make each day enjoyable, while Doris Barrette's beautiful and striking illustrations bring her thoughtful words to life

This is a fabulous book that teaches young readers about the important things we are thankful for. From family, to school, playdates, cuddles with mom, sled rides with dad, the moon and other things we often times take for granted, this book is one we absolutely loved reading. Not only is the story fabulous, the illustrations are great! At the end of the story is a place for your family, classroom, etc to list things you're thankful for. 

If you're looking for a most have book to pick up this Thanksgiving, this is one I highly recommend picking up!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
