Picture Books about Thanksgiving

November is our month to learn about gratitude, family, fall, and fun. Taking advantage of the teaching opportunities that come along with this month, I wanted to share our favorite picture books about Thanksgiving.

Most of these books were library finds for us, because I couldn’t find many among our own collection that were specifically Thanksgiving themed. (Guess it’s time to go shopping.?)

I was pretty pleased with the mixture of new, as well as, vintage books we were able to find. This list is a nice balance between simple, easy reads and books that contain more hearty content.

Hope you all are able to take time to read aloud to your kids this month. If you have any other great Thanksgiving-themed books leave them in the comments below!

  1. We were just at the library this weekend hunting for Thanksgiving books. When we return those we will have to check on some of these. We found Into the Wood and Turkey Bowl. Turkey Bowl doesn’t focus on being thankful really, but the kids liked it.

  2. Thanks for sharing Jessica! I need to get to the library to find some of these books. Our Liam is starting to read and is excited with picture books, also our little one needs them too. Have a lovely day, Terri xo.
