When we think of Thanksgiving, especially the first one we always remember the Indians (Native Americans) who ate with the Pilgrims. Day #17 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series is all about Native American Indians.
There are lots of good books out there about Indians, but these are the ones I thought would be best to read around Thanksgiving time:
Squanto’s Journey: The Story of the First Thanksgiving by Joseph Bruchac
The First Thanksgiving by Alice Dalgliesh
The Very First Americans by Cara Ashrose
The Wampanoag by Kevin Cunningham
Tapenum’s Day: A Wampanoag Indian Boy In Pilgrim Times by Kate Waters
People of the Breaking Day by Marcia Sewall
Thunder From the Clear Sky by Marcia Sewall
