A few of these books are non-fiction and would not make for very high interest “cover-to-cover” reads…unless your child is very into pilgrims or history!  However, you can use the pictures and excerpts from the text to engage your child on their level while still interacting with the books and teaching them about Thanksgiving!!  For these types of books, you could also just plan to read short passages out of them daily for the month of November to keep your child interested.
