Reviving a Legacy
What a treasure is Thanksgiving, A Time To Remember! The artwork is beautiful, and the uplifting, reverent music arranged by Keith Lynch and Allan Mesko is refreshing. We have long overlooked the enduring legacy of freedom we have received as Americans. I am grateful to learn new details of the heritage we have in the land of the free and the brave. Barbara Rainey has written a beautiful keepsake book recalling the history of this great and mighty land. God has been good to us, and He faithfully led brave men and women to establish this nation, where we who remember can continue to thank our Lord. I did note that the Fourth Commandment is correctly noted on page 30, not the Ninth, as a reviewer had mentioned. Every home needs this book!
The Night Before Thanksgiving
The Night Before Thanksgiving is a warm, whimsical celebration of everyone’s favorite fun-filled, family-filled, food-filled holiday! Follow along as the feast is prepared, cousins are greeted, and thanks are given, all with an extra helping of holiday fun.
What a fun book! This story combines the hectic pace of preparation with all the familiar elements of the big day. From cooking to relatives to football to the parades, my 6 year old delights in the families preparations.
The story promotes togetherness as family and includes a pause to give thanks for what they have.
The illustrations are colorful and a delight to our youngsters eyes.
Excitement of Thanksgiving
his is a lovely, classic Thanksgiving book to read with your kids while counting down the days to this “fun & food- filled” national holiday. Through the very humorous verses that rhyme on every page, our family warms up the old memories about THE NIGHT BEFORE THANKSGIVING when we baked pie, watched parade, set the table for the feast, prepared the food and the kids’ crafts and waited anxiously for the guests to arrive. Like the book depicted, it was a day full of hectic activities and sometimes mishaps did happen but it would be resolved when the prayer is said and all of the happenings become yet another year of thankful celebrations.
Great books to read to your kids for the holidays!
My kids love these books! We got the Night Before Halloween and The Night before the Night before Christmas! The boys love the story and its funny and easy for them to follow, and the illustrations are hysterical for them to look at! I have a 3 year old and a 2 year old and during November we read this book every night till the big day and the same for the Halloween one and the Christmas one…I enjoy these books myself I find myself laughing out loud when I read them to the boys!
Great books for learning about Thanksgiving!
