Synopsis: After listening to the story of the first Thanksgiving, some preschoolers offer their own thanks by way of a reenactment.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make pilgrim hats or leather headbands as the children made in the book.
•  Reenact the play the children in the book performed.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
