With the world as crazy as it is, teaching your child the importance of gratitude is crucial. A lot of children grow thinking of Thanksgiving as turkey day, and they aren't wrong, but there's so much more to it than that. Not only is it about a day about giving thanks, but it's also a time for everyone to put aside their differences and come together, and to be grateful for what they have, including each other — actually, a lot of adults could relearn this lesson, too. Luckily, there are plenty of Thanksgiving books for toddlers which do a pretty good job at teaching these lessons to our kids. If we can instill in our children that we should appreciate each others' unique differences, then there is there is hope in our future for everyone to accept each other.
There are plenty of children's Thanksgiving books on the market, including ones that feature some of our favorite characters, including Curious George, the mischievous monkey and Charlie Brown, the curious boy, and they all teach kids the importance of being grateful. Pete The Cat is my personal favorite children's book series, and there's a Thanksgiving edition about this cat's adventures as well. So grab one of these titles, and make this your go-to bedtime story this Thanksgiving season.
