Our theme for November is:
Each book is full of wonderful examples of characters showing gratitude.
4th Grade and Older
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura lives with her family in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. While life is hard, they realize they have so much for which to be thankful.
Kindergarten and Younger AND 1st – 3rd Grade
We will keep these two age groups separate for book club time, but both age groups will read and participate in activities for both books.
Splat Says Thank You! by Rob Scotton
Splat the Cat’s trusty mouse friend, Seymour, is sick and in need of cheering up. Splat makes Seymour a book to say thank you for everything Seymour means to him.
The Thankful Book by Todd Parr
Todd Parr is a master of the concept book, including The Peace Book and The Family Book. His quirky illustrations and blend of humor and tenderness are just right for the Good Book Club vibe. I wish he wrote a book for every theme we have!
