Thanksgiving Picks

When you tire of turkey, football and cousins this Thanksgiving, why not curl up on the couch with a good book? Two of my favorite seasonal books:

Turk and Runt by Lisa Wheeler--Confused turkeys think it's an honor to be chosen for Thanksgiving. When they discover they're about to be basted and roasted, they devise a plan that will keep them safe through the winter holidays.

Thank You Sarah. The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving by Laurie Halse Anderson--I bought this one last year for S whose birthday falls near Thanksgiving. It is one of her favorite books. It's the story of Sarah Hale, a stubborn, brave, super hero with a pen, who spoke up for what she believed and wrote and lobbied for 38 years to make Thanksgiving a national holiday. If you don't get to this one for Thanksgiving, give it a read around President's Day--Lincoln is the president who made Thanksgiving a national holiday.
