Parents and teachers will find inspiration for other Thanksgiving crafts and projects in this charming and funny storybook. A section at the back includes fun Thanksgiving facts.

Full of creativity, humor, and heart, Thanksgiving Day Thanks celebrates friendship, family, and the many other blessings in our lives for which we give thanks.

Critical Praise

“Bolstered by warm watercolor cartoon illustrations, this book is a perfect delivery system for a wealth of knowledge about Thanksgiving, with the story suggesting that family and friends are the main things to be thankful for.” — ALA Booklist

“Elliott does a commendable job of including a great deal of information about Thanksgiving history into the story and in endnotes, including a bit of Wampanoag vocabulary and some guesses as to the menu of that first 1621 feast.” — Publishers Weekly

Praise for A String of Hearts: “The delightful title sets the tone for this sweet story of friendship. A lovely Valentine story about the real meaning of friendship.” — School Library Journal

Praise for A String of Hearts: “Munsinger and Elliott sensitively convey classroom popularity dynamics and Valentine’s Day butterflies; the moment when Sam realizes that it’s Mary Ann he really likes should touch even Valentine’s Day grouches.” — Publishers Weekly
