Special thanks to digital intern McKenna Balzer for the following post!
This Thursday is Thanksgiving and many will gather with loved ones to reflect on all of the good in their lives (and eat way too much!). In a sometimes chaotic world, it is nice to have a day to feel the love of those around us and have the uncomfortably wonderful privilege of rolling around on the floor as full as can be.
Many families have Thanksgiving traditions that have been passed down through generations or big celebrations complete with a picture perfect Turkey. No matter what tradition you and your loved ones hold, It’s Thanksgiving by Tessa Kenan is the perfect Lerner Interactive Book to prepare for the holiday festivities. Throughout this book, readers can learn more about Thanksgiving and the different ways it can be celebrated.
Bumba Books’ entire Interactive Book series “It’s a Holiday” allows readers to explore the ways that many holidays are celebrated and help readers to build nonfiction reading skills through a photo glossary and quiz. These Interactive Books are designed to help readers gain confidence and strengthen literacy skills. Readers can follow along with the narrator through highlighted words, with a choice between three speeds of audio.
Soon we will find ourselves surrounded by pumpkin pie, delicious cranberry sauce, and mountains of mashed potatoes. It is important to embrace holidays like Thanksgiving and recognize all that we have to be grateful for. This Thanksgiving, remember to tell those in your life how thankful you are for them and make time for the small things, like sharing a book with someone you love.
