For the next couple of weeks, we are forgoing a fictional, chapter-book read-aloud and focusing our afternoon reading time on a handful of Thanksgiving-themed books. Although a few of the books I've chosen are beginner-style chapter books, most are lengthy picture books that give a LIVING look at various facets of the holiday and its beginnings. This is one of my favorite parts of viewing history through a living literature lens instead of a textbook...you get to see a story through many different perspectives and personas.

Here's my list in alphabetical order...
The Plymouth Colony
You Wouldn't Want to Sail on the Mayflower!
