My First Thanksgiving

"My First Thanksgiving" by Tomie dePaola is a great toddler and preschool age book that simplistically describes the history of Thanksgiving and what the typical household does to celebrate the holiday.

"This is the first Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims had a feast to thank God for their being together in their new home. Their friends came with food for the feast. We celebrate Thanksgiving every November."

The version I have is board book. I'm not sure if it's available in another format, but I prefer board books borrowed from the library because they reduce my fears of my child ripping the pages!
