The Very First Thanksgiving Day by Rhonda Gowler Greene is the perfect blend of educational and intriguing. This picture book has fantastic illustrations that are vibrant and elaborate. The text, on the other hand, tells the story/history of Thanksgiving in a way that is easy to follow and understand for beginning readers.
This book provides the perfect opportunity to act out the storyline. In a developmentally appropriate way, I feel it would be perfect to ask students to choose a character and retell the story by playing the characters in the book.
