The Very First Thanksgiving Day by Rhonda Gowler
Greene, Susan Gaber (Illustrator)
This is the food, gathered and blessed,
the corn and sweet berries, the wild turkey dressed,
shared on the very first Thanksgiving Day.
The story of the first Thanksgiving celebration, told in cumulative
rhyme, introduces young readers to America's most beloved national tradition,
which began with a shared feast to rejoice in the bounty of the land,
new beginnings, and peace between two societies.
Exquisite paintings by Susan Gaber transport the reader back to the
earliest days of American history with meticulous detail and breathtaking
imagery. Sure to be a yearly favorite, The Very First Thanksgiving Day
will resonate with readers young and old on this day for thanks and blessings.
