The First Thanksgiving: A Lift-the-Flap Book by Kathryn Lynn Davis
Rating: 5 cooperative stars
My blog entries have been a bit long lately, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet, just like this book for the littlest of little readers.
This is the best Thanksgiving book I've found that explains the holiday in simple, understandable (and rhyming!) words. The story focuses on the arrival of the Pilgrims, and the cooperation between them and the Native Americans who welcomed them--how the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. And then, to celebrate their new friendship, they had a big feast together.

This is a very cute for all those out there looking for a book for their grandchild or child's first or second Thanksgiving...
P.S. I realize that on the cover of the book the author is "Nancy Davis" and I've written Kathryn Lynn Davis, as I have found it many times online. I'm confused, too...!
