Literature Unit Study Ideas for Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin (31 Days of Literature Unit Ideas)

The book I'm sharing today is one that I enjoyed reading as a child. And, not to give away my age, but that makes this book a real classic. Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin is one I enjoy sharing with the kids every year around the holiday. But it's also great to use as part of a geography/state study. Although elementary school aged kids can probably read Cranberry Thanksgiving independently, I love reading it aloud. And even younger kids will really enjoy the story.

About the book...

Maggie and her Grandmother live on a cranberry farm. Every year Grandmother invites a friend for Thanksgiving dinner and encourages Maggie to do the same. At Thanksgiving dinner, she always serves her famous cranberry bread. But she never shares the secret recipe.

On this Thanksgiving, Maggie invites her friend Mr. Whiskers. He's a sea captain, and he isn't a favorite of Grandmother. Grandmother invites a new man in town, Mr. Horace. When Grandmother's recipe is stolen, she automatically assumes that Mr. Whiskers is the culprit. But is her judgment correct?
