Book Talk Thursday ~ Thanksgiving for Emily Ann

Welcome to another edition of Book Talk Thursday!  Next week I will take the week off to spend time with my family on Thanksgiving.  I will return the following week with some more fun books!

This week is our book fair, and I always find such great books while perusing the shelves.  This year is no different.  I stumbled upon the cutest book for Thanksgiving and will have to get it for my daughter: Thanksgiving for Emily Ann.
This book is perfect for teaching young children (and older children) what being thankful really means.  In the book Emily Ann thinks that Thanksgiving is no fun because everyone is rushing around and not paying attention to her.  She just wants to play and enjoy the day.  But her mom asks her to do one little thing to help out, and it all seems to come together for Emily Ann.  When all of her family arrives, she realizes what it means to truly be thankful.

Children will love the fun rhyming nature of the book, and adults will love the message it sends to children.  I can't wait to read this with my daughter!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

  1. I bought this book last weekend and my class loved it. I recently taught my kids how to draw faces with emotions. We learned about placement of eyebrows to help make emotions more apparent. It's all they notice at the moment when we look at illustrations of people...check out Emily Ann's eyebrows! So cute! Great book. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

    1. That is cool that they see the emotions in the characters' faces. I think that is an important skill that all kids need to have. Thanks so much for sharing that with us!
