Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s about eating great food, catching up with family, and relaxing. And since my beloved Green Bay Packers aren’t playing on Turkey Day this year, I’ll have even more time to enjoy other pursuits.


I plan to share my love of Thanksgiving with my daughter by reading her some of my favorite NOOK Kids books. The spirit of Thanksgiving lends itself well to children’s stories, and the Thanksgiving on NOOK kids collection offers some of the best:


Biscuit Is Thankful by Alyssa Satin Capucilli


The cute and playful Biscuit is thankful for his bone, his biscuits, and lots more, too.  As readers follow along with Biscuit's autumn adventures, they’ll learn that it’s the simple things in life that we should be most thankful for.





Clifford Big Red Reader: Thanksgiving Day Parade by Norman Bridwell


In another holiday canine adventure, Clifford the Big Red Dog enjoys outsized fun and big laughs.










Thanksgiving on Thursday (Magic Tree House Series #27) by Mary Pope Osborne


Time-traveling duo Jack and Annie take a trip back to 1621 to partake in the first Thanksgiving. Curious readers will learn the historical significance of this important American holiday.









Junie B., First Grader: Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten by Barbara Park


First grader Junie B.’s never-dull exploits continue in this quirky Thanksgiving tale. Junie’s class is trying to make the best ‘thankful list,’ so they’ll win a pumpkin pie prize. Even though Junie can’t stand pumpkin pie, her competitive juices are flowing, and when that happens, she just can’t be stopped!
