From Our Book Shelf * Over the River and Through the Woods

Each holiday I get out our favorite children's books that are related to the holiday and set them out in a basket. Don't worry if your children are older like mine. They will still enjoy a quick read. I set our books out and often find my 12 year olds picking them and and looking through them. One of our favorite Thanksgiving themed books is this version of Over the River and Through the Wood by Lydia Maria Child. Poems are always a favorite with children. I love the wood cut illustrations by Christopher Manson in this one. If you get this version or another this long time reminiscence of Thanksgiving with grandmother is a nice addition to your Thanksgiving traditions. You will soon be humming "Over the River and Through the Woods to grandmothers house we go" as you go about your daily work.
