I have a little book basket next to the boys' bunk beds, and every few weeks I rotate the books in it. They know I get to choose some of their bedtime books throughout the week, but I also include a few of their favorites. As we get close to holidays, I am trying to add in a few living books related to the holiday.
Off to Plymouth Rock by Dandi Daley Mackall
A fun little poem that gives a basic overview of the history of Thanksgiving. We used it during one of our lessons--Building the Mayflower.
The Story of the Pilgrims by Katherine Ross
A picture book that goes into more detail for younger children.
Samuel Eaton's Day - A Day in the Life of a Pilgrim Boy by Kate Walters
Learn about the day of a young boy who yearns to prove himself as he works in the fields with the men. From the hard work to the pride in his accomplishments, this is a book that shows character and strength. Photography is from a reenactment camp, and is lovely.
