Imagine your family reading a heart-warming Thanksgiving story each day and then participating in a fun activity together. This will be made simple for you with Countdown to Thanksgiving!
The book is broken up into daily sections. Each day has a story and an activity that will take about 30 to 45 minutes. Some of the stories included are: “Helen’s Thanksgiving” by Susan Coolidge; “Why He Carried the Turkey” by James Baldwin; “How Obadiah Brought About Thanksgiving” by Emily Hewitt Leland; “The Mother of Thanksgiving” by Amy Puetz; “A Mystery in the Kitchen” by Olive Thorne Miller; “Squanto” by Mr. Blaisdell and Mr. Ball; “The Story of Massasoit” by Robert Mackenzie; and “Turning the Thanksgiving Tables” By Carolyn Sherwin Bailey. Most of the stories in this book were written in the 1800s and early 1900s. Some of the language may seem old fashioned, but this only adds to their charm! Many of these stories have not been reprinted since their first publication, and are just waiting to be rediscovered by a whole new generation.
Countdown to Thanksgiving will appeal to any age group, but children ages 6-14 will enjoy it the most. Each story can be used to teach important lessons to your children. Reading aloud as a family will open up wonderful opportunities for discussions and conversations. The activities include: Games, Crafts, Cooking, a Quiz, Thanksgiving Songs, etc. This book will help families grow closer together.
