30 Wonderful Thanksgiving Board Books for Toddlers

by Ivy B

Looking for the best thanksgiving board books for toddlers? I bet you’ll find a top pick in this list of over 30 toddler Thanksgiving board books.

Fall in Florida is often just extended summer.  We experienced a cool spell just before Halloween and we’ll likely get hit with another cold snap in time for Thanksgiving.  I’m always grateful for the brief reprieve from the heat.  Still, I try not to get my hopes up that it will last because Florida usually experiences a summery Christmas season!

With Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the cool weather, pumpkin spice lattes, and the ability to wear a few cute sweaters.

Since we don’t experience true seasons in Florida, I experience much of Fall vicariously through images on Instagram, the internet, and other social media sites.  Books are a wonderful tool to teach the kids about the changes of the seasons and all about Thanksgiving.

I always start reading to my children when they’re babies, so I amass tons of books, especially on subjects that are more difficult to explain in real life, like seasonal changes and emotions.

When I really take a good look at Thanksgiving, I’m certain my kids would only think of Thanksgiving as a large gathering of family with a ton of food that should feed an army.  If it weren’t for books and school, that’s probably all they’d ever associate with Thanksgiving.

I like a variety of books to explain a single subject because you never know what book will grab your child’s attention.  That’s why I rounded up this list of 30 Thanksgiving board books for Toddlers.  You’re sure to find a few that will grab your little one’s attention and help them understand the full meaning of the Thanksgiving traditions!

30 great thanksgiving board books for toddlers. A great way to discuss the history, traditions, and seasonal experiences about Thanksgiving to a toddler is through books. Thanksgiving is more than just a large feast every year. | www.sahmplus.com
