'Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories)' Book Review

I first read Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories) by Mir Tamin Ansary to my toddler daughter last year before she even turned 2 years old. Although recommended for kids ages 6 and older, Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories) offers a great overview of the Thanksgiving holiday to readers of all ages.

As a nonfiction holiday book, Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories) focuses on providing information about the Thanksgiving, both past and present. Contents include the first Thanksgiving, a history of harvest festivals, the birth of the holiday in the United States, and current Thanksgiving traditions.

In addition to the text, Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories) also features illustrations and photographs that help keep younger readers engaged and bring the textual information to life for older readers. Even my toddler daughter enjoyed looking at the pictures as I read the book aloud to her.

The text is age-appropriate for early readers, but the pictures make the book suitable for younger children as well. If you are looking for a book to read with your child this Thanksgiving, I highly recommend Thanksgiving Day (Holiday Histories).
