Never Underestimate Little Old Ladies… at Thanksgiving

Thank you Sarah

If you don’t know Sarah Josepha Hale, you most likely don’t know that Thanksgiving is a national holiday because she lobbied for well over three decades to make it a reality. Sound like a boring read aloud? Think again!

This book takes us from the first feast to football. Then adds the historical context of the Civil War, debates over slavery, humor and Matt Faulkner‘s impressive illustrations to teach that you can indeed make a difference in the world: even if you are a marginalized, nonvoting, member of society… just like Sarah Josepha Hale.
