Thanksgiving is a celebration of abundance and there is a virtual cornucopia of children’s books about this holiday.

Bookstore shelves are laden with picture books about the first Thanksgiving as well as ones about today’s holiday tradition. There even seems to be a whole genre of entertaining books about turkeys on the run.
