There are times I get so wrapped up in big-time traditions that I simply forget how important every day rituals are. One of the greatest things my mom passed on to me was a love of reading. And really, what better time is there to share a favorite book with your kids than the holidays?
Thanksgiving is of course, a wonderful holiday, but for kids it can be a bit of a bore…the cleaning, the cooking and the chatter? Not that much fun.
We’re always looking for ways to get the boys in the spirit and I can’t think of a better way than by sharing Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey with them.
We love this book like crazy. A silly little story about a group of kids who embark on a surprisingly fun field trip and save a bunch of turkeys.
The illustrations are bright and fun.
Really, we could read this book every day of November.
Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving is just perfect for us. I hope you’ll try it out with your family and let me know what you think!
In the meantime, do you have a favorite Thanksgiving book?
