15 Great Thanksgiving Books for Speech & Language

Hi, Friends!

Even thought I'm starting to see Christmas decorations in all the stores, there's a holiday between Halloween and Christmas that I don't like to forget: Thanksgiving!

I love teaching about the first Thanksgiving in therapy, as well as discussing with my students what they are thankful for. It helps me get to know them on a more personal level while we're working on our speech and language goals.

You all know how much I love books, and my Thanksgiving book collection grows every year. Here's my list of my top 15 favorite books to use during Thanksgiving! I linked to any corresponding book companions I have as well!

1. Turkey Trouble, by Wendi Silvano

2. Thanks for Thanksgiving, by Julie Markes
3. I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, by Alison Jackson
4. Bear Says Thanks, by Karma Wilson & Jane Chapman

5. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey, by Lucille Colandro
6. The Night Before Thanksgiving, by Natasha Wing
7. The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks, by Jan & Mike Berenstain
8. T is for Turkey, by Tanya Lee Stone
9. From Seed to Pumpkin, by Wendy Pfeffer

10. The Very First Thanksgiving Day, by Rhonda Gowler Greene
11. One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims, by B.G. Hennessy
12. Ten Fat Turkeys, by Tony Johnston
13. Amelia Bedelia Talks Turkey, by Herman Parish
14. The Biggest Pumpkin Ever, by Steven Kroll
15. Just a Special Thanksgiving, by Mercer Mayer

Do you use any of these in therapy? Are there any great ones I missed? I'd love to hear your suggestions!
