Another Thanksgiving book post...

I just wanted to take a moment to share a couple more Thanksgiving books that we
are enjoying here in our little corner of the Garden State...

Cranberry Thanksgiving

We really enjoy this series, and we plan on making the cranberry bread recipe today. It doesn't have some of the prettiness of other books, but it always has a message we can relate to and enjoy.
Princess agrees we should try to find a copy to own.

The Night Before Thanksgiving
This is a funny take on the night before Christmas (obviously), and we enjoyed it very much. It made us look forward to the holiday even more for some reason.
Princess especially loved the relatives coming in for fun and food..very cute.

I thought it was going to stir up a lot of ...who will come over to see me? type questions,
but she likes the idea of it being just us as much as we do, so it looks like
we will be spending Thanksgiving just the three of us, although we have been discussing heading into the parade with some friends.
Another favorite around here is

I have written about this hilarious book before, but it has to be read every year.
It's a hoot!! We roll around on the couch reading it and cracking up.
Princess also thinks the pictures are too funny.

We will be trying to get some school done as well as cleaning in preparation for the holiday today.
Unfortunately, we got some bad news Yesterday, Princess's Great Grandma had what we believe
to be a stroke. We do not know too much yet, she was admitted into the hospital for tests, and hopefully
we'll know the extent of the damage done sometime today.
I hope you'll all send some positive thoughts her way.

Great List as usual, can not wait to see if the library has some. Of course all of our positive thoughts are going your way. I hope that your grandmother has a speedy recovery.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
