Today at the Library we are reading and learning about : The first Thanksgiving! Join us this Tuesday for kids time.
Let’s Read :
Discover what happened during the very first Thanksgiving!
As one of the few young children living in the Plymouth colony, Miles Allterton is always looking to make new friends. In a nearby Wampanoag settlement, a girl named Aquina wants to hunt with her father and brothers. When the two children meet during preparations for a harvest feast, they quickly strike up a friendship. Readers (Ages 7-9) will follow along as the children and their families attend the first Thanksgiving celebration.
A great way to start our class discussion and now a fun coloring page : Can you name the food he brought?
Did you know that corn 🌽 is over 10,000 years old ? Flint carn was served at the first Thanksgiving but now sweet corn is served.
