Favorite Thanksgiving Books & Songs For Kids

I posted these books and songs last year, but I thought they were worth sharing again.  I love nothing more than curling up with my boys at the end of a day with a good holiday book! 

Favorite Thanksgiving Books & Songs For Kids from Blissful Roots

I found all of these books at Barnes and Noble.  You can click on each book to find more information and pricing.  You can also find the majority of these books from  Scholastic Book Clubs.  They always have great prices and fun holiday books.  Check your child's book orders if they bring them home from school.

(I'm not quite sure what happened to the poor "Plump and Perky Turkey" book.  It's a bit tiny- sorry.  Tiny, but with a huge price!  The listing price at Barnes and Noble is only $349.89!  What a deal!)

And here are three of our favorite songs for Thanksgiving.
  My twins are seven now, and at times I wonder if they've out grown the songs or find them a bit silly, but just last night I was singing "Five Fat Turkeys" (without even realizing it- my husband just loves it when I do things like that).  I guess I stopped before the song was over because one of my twins said, "Mom!  Aren't you going to finish the song?"  Yep, he still loves them!

Five Fat Turkeys
Five fat turkeys are we
We slept all night in a tree
When the cook came around
We couldn't be found 
And that's why we're here you see!
(Click here to listen to the tune.  The video is a bit crazy, but at least you can hear how the song goes.)

Turkey Dinner
(Sung to the tune of Frère Jacques)
Turkey dinner, turkey dinner
Gather round, gather round
Who will get the drumstick
Yummy, yummy yum-stick
All sit down, all sit down.
Cornbread muffins, chestnut stuffin'
Pumpkin pie, one foot high
All of us were thinner 
'Till we came to dinner
Me oh my, me oh my!

The Pilgrims and the Indians
The Pilgrims and the Indians
Had a pow-wow a long time ago.
The Pilgrims and the Indians
Felt like having a party and so,
The Pilgrims and the Indians
Cooked a turkey and Indian corn.
Sat down and ate together,
And that is how Thanksgiving was born!
(Amy at Sunlitpages has a link where you can listen to a bit of this song or purchase it on CD.  It is extremely catchy!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.

Linking up to these parties & Savvy Southern Style.

  1. Nice collection. It can be a challenge to find songs to sing for Thanksgiving.

    1. It really can be a challenge, JoAnn. In fact, I feel like I need a few more. We love our three, but new ones would be fun as well. I'll hunt some down for next year. Thanks so much for visiting!! Enjoy your day!

  2. I have read your article, it is very informative and helpful for me. I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. Thanks for posting it.
