I am shocked the the fall is flying by so fast, and we’re already talking about Thanksgiving?! Yes, I know that Thanksgiving is a month away, but I also know that the month will fly by just as fast as the last month has. Before we know it, we’ll be sitting down at to a glorious Thanksgiving feast.
It’s time for another edition of the monthly Entertainment Hop, where I join with a group of my blogger friends to share books, games, music, and movies – and this month, it’s all about Thanksgiving! This week, I put together my traditional collection of holiday picture books. Even though my kids are a little old for story books like these, gathering holiday books was one of my favorite traditions while the kids were little, and this is my way of keeping that tradition alive. I hope to inspire other families with little kids to start a tradition of gathering and reading holiday-themed books together.
This collection includes some of our favorite authors and books that are both fun and informative. Enjoy! Note: Amazon affiliate links are used to link to each book below.
