Secular Thanksgiving Picture Books

It can be difficult for parents and teachers to find picture books that approach Thanksgiving in a secular way. This is a list of titles that do not interpret the holiday in a religious manner. Although several of these books mention characters being "thankful," they do not depict anyone giving thanks to a higher power.

Please do not add books to this list which feature characters engaging in religious rituals, such as attending worship services, saying grace, expressing belief in a deity, etc.
