It is November! Halloween is over, Christmas is on the way, but let's not forget Thanksgiving. I am excited about Christmas, don't get me wrong, but I do think we need to stop and appreciate Thanksgiving, too. It kind of provides a balance for us and the kids between the dress-up and candy fun of Halloween and the gimmies of Christmas. We need to teach kids about Thanksgiving…the history…the need to be thankful for what we have….and yes, the food and silliness, too!
Here are a few suggestions for fun and charming books for the month of November. Some are silly, some are serious, but they are all fun. This is a great reminder for us parents to just sit down and read with our kids before the madness of the holiday season takes over!

It's also never too late to start a Thankful Tree. We made a thankful tree one year and just kept it going through the holidays. It was a great reminder!
