What is Thanksgiving?

ISBN #:  978-0-7660-3701-4

As we approach the last few months of the year, we begin to anticipate and think about the year-end holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Titles in Enslow’s I like Holidays! series, written by Elaine Landau, can help teach children in grades K-3 about these shared events. What Is Thanksgiving? is a great way to help the family prepare for this holiday that is fast approaching. It features words to know and full-color photos as it tells the Thanksgiving story from its history to how we celebrate today.

I Like Holidays! is a great series year round as it contains titles appropriate throughout the year: What Is Christmas?, What Is Halloween?, What Is St. Patrick’s Day?, What Is Thanksgiving?, What Is the 4th of July?, What Is Valentine’s Day?, and What Is Veteran’s Day? Each library bound title costs $21.26 and has 24 pages, vivid color photographs, and an activity that relates to the title.

Make What Is Thanksgiving? part of your family’s feast this year!
