Thanksgiving Books

Thanksgiving isn't a holiday in Japan (for obvious reasons) but it is still part of our family's cultural heritage so we celebrate it every here.  Here are some of our favorite Thanksgiving books.  While most focus on being thankful, we also use this time to learn about Native American culture and why settlers left Europe all those years ago.

Mega's selections:
