Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's hoping everyone's Thanksgiving is swanky.

Before we settle in to watch the Macy's Day Parade, here's a little poem to read at the Thanksgiving table. It's from a classic book of children's poetry and I love the illustrations sprinkled throughout the book. Click on the poem to discover the book and then check it out and take it home! 

 I give thanks for YOU dear reader and this blog and books and reading and free public libraries and poetry and parades. xoxo Miss Kitty
