Story Walk

Another month, another StoryWalk.This month's book is "Thanksgiving in the Woods" by Phyllis Alsdurf Based on a true story, "Thanksgiving in the Woods" is a story about a family in upstate New York who hosted Thanksgiving out among the trees. I celebrated Thanksgiving outside one year and let me tell you it's cold. This is how the first settlers and the native Americans might have had their dinner. Come, read and be glad that we can all have Thanksgiving inside together.
