As you probably already know, we love reading at Country Home Learning Center! Reading is so beneficial for people of all ages, and that includes little ones and their parents and guardians. With Thanksgiving this month, we thought it would be the perfect time to share a list of children’s books about thankfulness. Some of these books are Thanksgiving-related, but many of them simply highlight the general theme of being grateful.
Looking for more recommendations for children’s books? Check out some of our past blog posts about books!
While this list of titles is technically for children, the lessons and reminders in these stories are applicable for all of us. We can all use a little nudge to be more thankful, no matter how young or old we are. During this holiday season, let the characters and storylines remind all of us how much we have to be thankful for and how we can practice thankfulness as families and individuals. Without further ado, here are some books for your family to enjoy all month long!
