Holiday Inspiration: Black Thanksgiving Books for Kids

Holiday Inspiration: Black Thanksgiving Books for Kids

As a new mom, I am always looking for new things to do with my baby. From going to museums, crafting activities and snuggle time, there is always something to explore but I leave the story time to my husband. He loves reading books to Jackson and with Thanksgiving almost here, I figured we would do a little story time on the African American Thanksgiving traditions. Here is a list of Black Thanksgiving Books for Kids we curated.  We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and here and time with your family. Be sure to share images of your day with us on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle

Holiday Inspiration: Black Thanksgiving Books for Kids

Feast for 10

A counting book that features an African-American family shopping for food, preparing dinner, and sitting down to eat. Lively read-aloud text paired with bright collage illustrations.

Thanks a Million

In sixteen extraordinary poems that range in form from a haiku to a rebus to a riddle, Nikki Grimes reminds us how wonderful it is to feel thankful, and how powerful a simple “thank you” can be.

A Strawbeater’s Thanksgiving

Determined to be the strawbeater during the corn shucking party, Jess, a small slave boy, wrestles a bigger, stronger boy for the honor. By the creators of Irene Jennie and the Christmas Masquerade.

The Extra-Thankful Thanksgiving (Little Bill Stickers -N- Shapes 2)

Children love to learn and are always figuring things out about themselves and the world around them. And the more they know, the better equipped they are to handle the challenges of growing up. Little Bill encourages children to value their family and friends, to feel good about themselves, and to learn to solve problems creatively. I hope young readers will see Little Bill as their friend and enjoy his real-life adventures.

Grandma’s Thanksgiving Dinner

Janis Kearney best-selling author of Cotton Field of DreamsSunday’s with TJ, and former presidential diarist  to U.S. President Bill Clinton, best describes author Maria Hoskins’s Children’s story Grandma’s Thanksgiving Dinner in the books foreword.  Kearney writes:

Author of the 2014 Christmas Night on the Farm, Maria Hoskins has once again brought her magical childhood memories of holidays on the farm to young readers in her new book, Grandma’s Thanksgiving Dinner.  Here, Hoskins shares memories of crisp autumn days on an Arkansas farm populated by a loving family and farm animals.   Thanks to Hoskins vivid memories, young readers will surely imagine waking up on Thanksgiving morning on the rural farm, feeling the warmth of the potbellied stove, and hearing the unique sounds from the barn that can only be heard on a farm.

Finally, Hoskins’ story will surely entice the most reticent of readers as they imagine the tastes, the textures, the smells of the sweet potato pie, turkey and dressing, ham and homemade rolls!   A most delightful potpourri of life on the farm on Thanksgiving Day
