Last Thanksgiving she was just a blob of a newborn and I was in the nightmarish haze of first time motherhood. This year, she’s rocking and rolling and ready for her cranberry sauce.

I want to be honest with my daughter about Thanksgiving; how it wasn’t this cutesy dinner where pilgrims and Native Americans sat down peacefully and had dinner. I want to teach her about America’s honest history, even though it isn’t pretty.

These days, Thanksgiving is more about getting family together and enjoying a comforting meal. I know my daughter will love being able to sit at the table and smashing her hands in some potatoes.

To help get her ready for turkey day were looking into Thanksgiving books.
