This is a wonderful book full of poems about encouraging kids to give and be thankful. It incorporates many wonderful holidays as well. I recommend this book because it has meaning and a great message.

This is a gorgeously illustrated book of beautiful poems. Great poems to share with your family, children (and adults) of all ages.

Was hoping for some good poem excerpts to use for Thankgiving readings.
Found one (Ivy Eastwick's "Thanksgiving"). The rest of the readings are mostly eh.
