Give Thanks for Books

This Thanksgiving season, I'm taking time to give thanks to my parents for having books in our home when I was a child. Being surrounded by stories helped shaped my life personally and professionally. As a parent and librarian, I know how important books are to children. Books surround my kids in our home, and we make reading an integral part of our daily routine.

Give the gift that keeps on giving this Thanksgiving and check out one or two of my favorite Turkey Day readalouds.

The Perfect Thanksgiving: Families celebrate Thanksgiving in many different ways and they are all perfect!

Turk and Runt: All the turkeys want to be the Thanksgiving turkey, except Runt, who knows the truth about Thanksgiving dinner.
