Thanksgiving is a special time to look back on our history and marvel at how things have changed. With our children so engrossed in electronics and modern convenience, there is little thought as to where things come from or even how they came to be. I like to read aloud and share these books and other similar books at this time of year. While I am reading, I stop and ask questions and start discussions comparing then and now.
These books are all from Scholastic and there are some other similar books from National Geographic.
The three pictured here are:
"Sarah Morton's Day”
by Kate Waters
(there are also books for a Pilgrim boy and a Wampanoag boy)
"If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620"
by Ann McGovern
"Chronicle of America: Colonial Times"
by Joy Masoff
