Happy November, Kidsreaders!

One of my favorite holidays is just a few weeks away, and it’s not just because of the turkey, stuffing and my nana’s chocolate cake (yup, I’m one of those weirdos who prefers cake to pie on Thanksgiving). It’s also because it's an opportunity to see family and think about all of the things I’m thankful for.

I know, I know, insert corny music here. But seriously, there’s plenty: my new nephew, who will be celebrating his first Thanksgiving with us at the end of the month, my family and good friends near and far, the life that I’ve built in New York City since I moved here a year ago and, of course, all of the amazing books I get to read all the time!

In honor of Thanksgiving, I compiled a short list of “literary wonders to be thankful for.” Let me know if you agree, or if I left anything off!

Happy November!
With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, we imagine that your heads are spinning with recipes and menus, as well as travel and seating plans for this big family holiday. Keep in mind that holiday memories are made up of both big and small moments --- and sometimes the things that went wrong bring up the best reminiscences in years to come.
As we know things can get crazy at holiday time, we decided to take a step back and do a good old-fashioned reflection of things we're thankful for, literary style.
