Happy Tuesday!! Well, Halloween has come and gone, but we are still right in the middle of the holiday season! The mall may have forgotten about Thanksgiving, but I will certainly not leave the Thanksgiving theme out of my therapy sessions. I called out to my blogging besties and created a collaborative list of everyone's favorite Thanksgiving story. I am so thankful to have so many great blogging friends. I now own all 15 of these books or they are currently on my amazon wish list. Check out the list below!
My favorite Thanksgiving story to read with my students was always The Great Turkey Race by Steve Metzger. However, I sadly believe that they are no longer printing this book because it is listed on Amazon for over $500! But there are so many great Thanksgiving themed books, so the book I am adding to our list is

  1. Just wanted to let you know that Watch Know Learn has a free video of the Great Turkey Race being read aloud.

  2. Fluffy's Thanksgiving by Kate McMullan. The K-1st kids don't quite get the humor, though!

  3. Thanksgiving at the Tappletons by Eileen Spinelli. Funny story embedded with the real meaning of Thanksgiving. My kiddos love it!
