Happy Thanksgiving!

I found the best Thanksgiving book at the library this year! It’s called Over the River and Thro’ the Woods. There are many different versions of this book but NONE are as adorable as this one illustrated by Normand Chartier.

Does this title sound familiar? That’s because you probably sing it every CHRISTMAS! But guess what? It’s really a Thanksgiving poem!

Once I read it, I knew I had to own it. I was tempted to “accidentally” forget to return the book to the library. But instead, I got it from one of Amazon’s partner sellers for $3. It’s in our bookstore now! Is it not super adorable?!

  1. That’s really cute! I got a book for my daughter this year called “Thanks for Thanksgiving.” It’s a really simple rhyming story, with beautiful illustrations of a loving family. (A family with THREE kids, I might add. 🙂 )
