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!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. March 17 is believed to be the day Patrick died, around the year A.D. 460.

Did you know that the Irish flag has three vertical stripes? The green stripe is for the people of southern Island, the orange stripe is for the people of northern Ireland, and the white stripe in the middle is a hope for peace so that the two sections of Ireland will get along.

These two facts (and more) can be found in St. Patrick's Day, Revised and Updated by Dorothy Rhodes Freeman, an elementary title published by Enslow.

Are your students interested in making St. Patrick's Day crafts? How about some celtic jewelry, celtic designs, a bodhran (an Irish drum), a pencil topper, or a game? These crafts (and more) can be found in St. Patrick's Day Crafts by Carol Gnojewski.
