Sharing the Bread: A Wonderful Thanksgiving Story for Children
I love to read books to my children that "co-inside" with the seasons or holidays that we are celebrating. It's a way to create enthusiasm, excitement, and wonder in a child's heart while introducing them to basic concepts and ideas about a specific subject or time of year. So November means taking out our Thanksgiving books.
This year, one of the Thanksgiving books that I am reading with my children is Sharing the Bread: An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving Story. I found this book last year at the library and was so delighted by it that I wrote down the title hoping to purchase it the following year.
I love the simple, old-fashioned illustrations, the careful attention to detail in words and pictures, the poetic style of this book, and especially the emphasis in the end of the book upon thanking the Lord for His provision. This book is just delightful for all of those reasons and more. It is a wonderful book for families and I am hoping to continue to read it to my children (ages 2 and 4 now) even as they grow a little older.
Other Thanksgiving books we've been enjoying:
A Turkey for Thanksgiving, by Eve Bunting
Bear Says Thanks, by Karma Wilson
My First Thanksgiving, by Tomie dePaola
My Thanksgiving Prayer, by Crystal Bowman
Thankful Together, by Holly Davis
