Giving Thanks: How Thanksgiving Became a National Holiday
Giving Thanks: How Thanksgiving Became a National Holiday
by Denise Kiernan
All across the world, among hundreds of cultures and across centuries, people have come together to give thanks. But Americans didn't have an official Thanksgiving holiday until the 1800s. The holiday Americans know today exists because of a woman named Sarah Josepha Hale, a spirited letter-writing campaign, a sympathetic president, and a civil war. This beautifully illustrated picture book shares the true story of how Thanksgiving became a national American holiday and offers a look at the timeless and global power of gratitude.
