30 Books About Fall and Thanksgiving for Kids

by Tonya Staab

Want to teach the kids more about fall and the history of Thanksgiving? Here are 30 books you should read with them this year.

It’s Autumn, and the kids are back to reading 20 minutes each night in bed for their school reading log. So, I’ve put together a list of 30 books for Fall and Thanksgiving so kids can learn more about this wonderful time of year. They will love learning about why leaves change colors, why we give thanks, and explore fun fall activities they can do.

A roundup of fall and Thanksgiving books for kids.

Note: This list was originally put together for a website called Rusty and Rosy, however that is now offline so I moved the content I put together over here.
