Friday Book Recommendation: Thank You, Sarah! The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving

by Laurie Halse Anderson
illustrated by Matt Faulkner

Did you know that the same person who composed "Mary Had a Little Lamb" was also responsible for the creation of our national day off from work for Thanksgiving?  And how did she do it?  Despite failure after failure, she was "bold, brave, stubborn and smart."  The greatest lesson in this?  She was just a mom who never gave up and persevered to make a difference.  

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday away from work and close to family.
