No Thanksgiving?

Family, friends and fabulous food. Who doesn't love Thanksgiving?  That may be the case today, but way back when "skirts were long and hats were tall" Americans were forgetting Thanksgiving, and nobody seemed to care! Thankfully, Sarah Hale appeared. More steadfast than Plymouth Rock, this lady editor knew the holiday needed saving. But would her recipe for rescue ever convince Congress and the presidents?

Join acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson on a journey of a woman and a pen that spanned four decades, the Civil War, and five presidents, all so you could have your turkey and eat it too!

Open A Book to Discover A World of Creative Possibilities

 

 

 When children are given opportunities to explore, discover and create they develop skills, which can be applied to other areas of their lives; such as creativity and problem solving. So, open a book to expand the possibilities in your child’s life.
