Happy Thanksgiving Day!

"Happy Thanksgiving Day!" by Jill Roman Lord is a touch and feel board book great for toddlers and preschoolers.

This book shows a family enjoying the typical American Thanksgiving traditions of jumping in the leaves, enjoying a family feast, reading stories under cozy blankets, making colorful drawings of turkeys and pilgrims and enjoying a hayride.

It is told from the first person perspective of the young boy in the family who realizes that Thanksgiving is a time to recognize and give thanks to the Lord for everything he enjoys in life.

"Then, when the day is over and my nighttime prayers are said, I'm thankful for my teddy that's so snuggly in my bed. I like to name my blessings and to celebrate and say a special thanks for all God's gifts on this Thanksgiving Day! Thank you, God!"
