Give Thank You a Try – November Book Club

I am so excited to share with you a little about our reading for November. If you remember, I shared with you about this new book club at the beginning of the month. I am joining a few other great ladies who are all sharing the books we are reading each month and how we make it fun for our kids, or share our review at the end of the month.

This month, we had some good books picked out, but I wanted to spend some time on something other than Thanksgiving. I found Give Thank You A Try from James Patterson. I love James Patterson books, so I thought this might be a great way to get the kids thinking about being thankful for things, and this book did not disappoint!

Give Thank You A Try is a fun little book full of things that kids are thankful for. They have simple little “thank you” sentences that make up the book. There is no real story, rather just all the things these kids, and families say thank you for.

Saying Thank You

After reading this book, I had my kids think of things they were thankful for. We spent some time thinking about what we could say thank you for. The kids were able to say thank you to our neighbor who gave us cookie dough to make cookies with.

We could say thank you for the food we eat, our family, our church family, and just having a house to stay in. I even found that the kids loved running to the neighbor’s houses and personally telling them thank you for being who they are to us!

Overall, we loved this book as a way to remember how we have so much to say thank you for. Now, I notice them saying thank you for many things they may never have thought to say thank you for before.

I am glad we took the time to find books on thankfulness to read this month! I would love to hear of some of your favorite books on thankfulness, can you share them with me in the comments?

 

Also, make sure to stop and check out what my friends have shared for their books for the month!

November Book Club – Thankful

So, I am working on something. Something I want all of you to be a part of, whether you have a blog or not! A monthly book club. This can be for kids, mom, dad, the whole family, whatever works for you!

What Is the Monthly Book Club?

Every month, during the first week of the month, I will share with you the theme of the books for the month. Yes, theme, not title. I get it, most book clubs will tell you the title you should be reading, but since this is open to all ages, I just want to go with a theme.

As the month goes on, you read your book(s) that go with the theme. If you have kids, have fun with the books, do activities, watch the movie after you read the book, whatever you want. If you are doing this with older kids, or yourself, get a review going. Find out what you like or don’t like. Why should I add it to my list, or why should I avoid it?

Come back during the last week of the month and share! Share what you read and what you did. Share your review. Just come back and share. So, how do you do this if you don’t have a blog? Simple, leave your books, and review in the comments!

November Books Club 2020

This month, since we are truly just starting out, I went with an easy theme, Thanksgiving/Thankful. I know there are many books on this theme, relating to the holiday, or just the act of being thankful. Get onto GoodReads, Amazon, or your library page and start finding those books!

I am not alone in this, I have a group of fellow blogger friends who will be joining me. Check them out and give them some love!
