    14. Thanksgiving is a holiday that is rarely celebrated for the thanks part. I enjoyed this book because it names the simple things to be thankful for that so many teachers and students alike take for granted. Although I would not use this as a whole group read aloud because of the holiday theme, it would not be a bad book for children overall.

    15. A simple concept book about what to be thankful for at Thanksgiving. It could be useful in getting writing started on what to be thankful for at holiday time.

    16. This book smells amazing, well only because it's brand new. But mmm. And it's very great to read to or with kids to teach them about being thankful. My favorite page was "I am thankful for all the dogs and cats that I know. It's fun when they let me pet them." AWW.

    17. Children will be able to relate to the little one's reasons for being thankful in this cheery book.Silly reasons like being thankful for purple lollypops, to personal reasons like being thankful for parents or teachers, are included.

    18. I like the book because it is about family traditions and to be thankful for all the good things that we have. Also, it is an easy book that my students enjoyed reading. It has beautiful pictures and of course it is about the pilgrims and history.

    19. This is a great book to show how different families celebrate an American tradition. This could be used to talk about how traditions have changed since the first thanksgiving. This could be used for a text to person connection.

    20. Just right for the preschoolers. Not too long. Not dripping in history. It just is a great little book that tells why be thankful - family, friends, books.
