Friday Finds - Thanksgiving
Mary's First Thanksgiving – This book is set during the early 1900's. Mary and her family are recent immigrants from Ireland. This is the first year they are in
I really like that the book shows an honest child’s perspective of envy and poverty. I also like that it shows Mary finding age appropriate yet meaningful things to be thankful
Fletcher and the Falling Leaves – This book is more an Autumn book than a Thanksgiving book but we hold it until November rather reading it earlier in Autumn so it fits to me. Some people have recommended this books a helpful tool for little ones faced with death / grief. It can be read simply as a season book or used as a jumping place for other discussion. It shows the circle of life as Fletcher deals with fear and grief as his favorite tree loses its leaves.
