Day #8 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series is going to focus on Turkeys. There are so many fun things for kids to do with Turkey themes for Thanksgiving! According to  History.com, the Pilgrims and Indians most likely had turkey at the first Thanksgiving and so we always think of turkeys around this time of year.

 When I started looking, I realized there are SO MANY children’s books out there about turkeys at Thanksgiving.  Here are just a few that I thought would be fun to read:
