    "My kids love reading and so I'm always on the lookout for great books that they'll surely enjoy. We have a tradition every holiday where we read various tales to our kids so I'm always on the lookout for new books. If you're searching for a fun story for Thanksgiving, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" is something your kids will definitely like. I grew up with the Charlie Brown books and maybe I am a bit biased but my kids adore Charlie Brown and I'm sure yours will too. This book is fun, lighthearted and even the adults will likely enjoy it."

    "My child loves to read, so I try to get him books all year round. Well, Thanksgiving was coming up, so I wanted to give him a book about Thanksgiving. He loves the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, so it'd be nice to give him a book related to that. Balloons over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade is a very informative book. It's incredibly interesting, and he hasn't been able to put the book down. He'll be finished with it shortly. He keeps telling me little bits of information he learned from it. It sounds like he loves it!"

    "As with all the books of Graeme Base, the illustrations are fantastic. I bought "Discovery of Dragons" for my two little girls who loved "Animalia" and "Eleventh Hour." My girls are two and four and the only problem with "Dragons" is that the text is a little long on each page. However we spend a lot of time with this book discussing the images and I think it's an effective learning tool in that regard (having the girls describe the dragons is an effective way to promote sentence construction)."

This book has no mention of the holiday nor any mention of giving thanks for any reason. I could not find a single linking feature that could tie this book to the Thanksgiving holiday.
