Each November, Americans have the opportunity to celebrate a nationwide holiday for every one, the feast of Thanksgiving. At this time it is good to remember the origins of this celebration. Turkeys, Pilgrims and Indian Corn by Edna Barth is a good resource for the whole family. The author provides chapters on the three centuries of Thanksgiving,

the history of the Pilgrims in England, Holland, the Pilgrim leaders, the Mayflower and its

voyage, Pilgrim clothes, animals, houses, children and mothers as well as chapters about

Plymouth Rock, Indian neighbors, pumpkins, turkeys, cranberries, Indian corn and harves festivals of the world. In addition, there are puzzle and craft activities on the front and back inside covers of the book. Ursula Arndtís black and white illustrations decorate the book well

and help make the book accessible to the whole family.

Daily Life in the Pilgrim Colony 1636 by Paul Erickson combines the history of the Pilgrims and Plymouth Colony with the daily life of a typical Pilgrim family. This book is wonderfully illustrated with photographs of artifacts, tools, animals, food, and buildings of the Pilgrimsí time. There are also maps and some painting reproductions. Besides sections on the world of the Pilgrims, the New World, New Plymouth: Town and Colony and Government and Religion there are sections on: Making and Mending, Cooking and Eating, Getting Dressed, Womenís Work, Menís Work, Health and Medicine, Trade and Defense, and The Childrenís Day among others.

These two books are just a couple of the many Thanksgiving and other holiday related books available at Logos. So come visit us. While you are there, you might want to take advantage of our Tolkien sale on certain editions of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings.
