Even though it is October, I am one of those people who starts to get eager about the holidays the minute October 1st hits. I love fall and everything that comes with it, even books for the kids to enjoy together.
Now, I know Thanksgiving is over a month away but I wanted to share this book with you in time for you to pick it up before the holiday because Sharing The Bread (ages 4-8) is the perfect read-aloud book to celebrate the Thanksgiving tradition.
In this beautiful ode to Thanksgiving, set at the turn of the century, a large family works together to make their special meal. Mama prepares the turkey; Daddy tends the fire; Sister kneads the bread dough; and Brother bastes the bird as it roasts. Everyone—from Grandma and Grandpa to the littlest baby—has a special job to do.
I haven’t shared this book with the kids yet as I want to wait until we get closer to Thanksgiving but I have read through it myself and think it is a great book. From beautiful illustrations to a great story, I know this is a book that my kids will truly enjoy when we do read it.
If you are looking for a book to share with your children this Thanksgiving, definitely give Sharing The Bread a try.
