Kids Cook with Books – Thanksgiving Edition

Kids Cook with Books – Thanksgiving Edition
When Kids Cook with Books was born last June, I made a list of books that we would read together for the rest of the calendar year.  Originally, I chose The Night Before Thanksgiving by Natasha Wing for November...for obvious reasons.  It's a sweet rhyming story about a family preparing for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.   And I like it.

Teacher Appreciation Week {Sale}
