I just love this picture book! It’s probably my all-time favorite Thanksgiving picture book, although it’s super hard to pick just one, they are all so good! It captures the spirit of Thanksgiving so well, of immigrants, as the Pilgrims were immigrants, kindness to strangers (like the Pilgrims and Native Americans had for each other), hospitality, and gratitude to God. If you love stories of friendship and surprises, you will love it!
How delighted I was to find that my friend Melanie Hartzell has a YouTube with her reading it aloud! See below!
It’s such a wonderful book! I’m glad you found the YouTube I made. Last month I had to fill in for a friend at our co-op when her kids got sick. I read the the kids this book and we made potato prints together. So much fun!
