a thanksgiving book
on a recent trip to the post library, i found this lovely book (i especially love this edition) written by louisa may alcott. we had just rented the movie of the same title (an old fashioned thanksgiving) but i was pleasantly surprised to find that it is completely different from the movie and that it truly is honey for my children's hearts. what a lovely tale of a large, close-knit family in the rural frontier of new hampshire during the 1700's. just the kind of story i want my girls to hear as we discover how special it is for family to help and work alongside eachother.
