Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I have compiled a list of my favorite Thanksgiving books to read aloud during the month of November. This list focuses mainly on being thankful, turkeys and the family feast because the concept of the First Thanksgiving is a very abstract one for young children to grasp. Beautiful illustrations paired with rhyming text make this series the perfect read aloud for any preschool or kindergarten classroom. Over the River by Derek Anderson An amusing take on the classic song where turkeys take the place of humans. The vivid, eye-catching illustrations will capture the attention of your students and the hilarious antics will keep them engaged.
This list of turkey books is sure to get you and the kids in the mood for Thanksgiving Day. The story counts down from ten as turkeys fall off a fence, one by one. Moreover, the rhyme and alliteration makes it an enjoyable read-aloud. Still, it would be a good reading mentor text for talking about problem and solution. Turkey Tot — This lively story is one of my favorites. A turkey wants blackberries that are growing out of reach.
Turkey Books for Toddlers and Preschoolers
Here are our favorite Thanksgiving books for kids. A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman is such a cute and funny book about a town that needs a turkey and the hilarious lengths they go to to find one. The town is sadly outwitted by the turkey and end up eating shredded wheat for thanksgiving. The illustrations kept my little man interested when he was a toddler but he only started understanding the dark humor at around 4. I love this book because of the humor makes me giggle. My son was a little off put by the idea of the towns folk eating the turkey and was relived when he escaped before they shoved him in the oven.
