Picture Book Basket // November

As November came around this year, I thought about my goals for reading with my children this month. I sought out books that represent the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people and what their day-to-day lives may have looked like in the 1600s. I looked for books that celebrate life and the many things to be thankful for and books written by Native people to honor Native American month. Thanksgiving to me is a time to focus on gratitude and togetherness. I also wanted heartwarming stories that remind me of my own Thanksgiving memories. Here are our favorite picture books to read in November...may the list be ever-growing and changing!
