I love to read and I”m trying hard to install that same love of reading in my children. As I child there was nothing better than a new book and even now, I love to go to the bookstore, wander around and find new books to read and love. My kids are the same way and it is so interesting to see what books they chose when given the chance to pick one out on their own. I also like to sneak in learning whenever I can and I find books the perfect way to do that. Finding a book that interests them and they can learn something from makes me happy. I recently spent some time in the bookstore looking for Thanksgiving Short Stories so that we can read them over the next few weeks and I want to share my list with you. I will share the title of the book and an brief snippet from Amazon about the book to help you make your decision.
