The Very First Thanksgiving Day

Illustrated by Susan Gaber

The story of the first Thanksgiving for young readers with beautiful Dutch-inspired paintings.

This is the very first Thanksgiving Day. 

This is the food, gathered and blessed, 
the corn and sweet berries, the wild turkey dressed
shared on the very first Thanksgiving Day.

Also available in Weston Woods DVD and audio CD.


Reviews

“…Greene succinctly describes the first feast and traces the Pilgrims’ roots back to England. Gaber contributes breathtaking paintings…Her illustration of the Mayflower, seen as a tiny ship against a vast sea nearly indistinguishable from the sky, alone testifies to the Pilgrims’ courageous journey.”
Publishers Weekly

“…a delightful, cumulative tale…Beautifully detailed acrylic paintings…”
The Topeka Capital Journal
