Top Ten Tuesday - Thanksgiving Freebie - Top Ten Books with "Thank" or "Thanks" in the Title

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.

This week is a Thanksgiving Freebie. I've done a Fall/Halloween themed book list before. I've done a Christmas book list. This year though, I've decided to focus on the Top Ten Books that have the words "Thanks," "Thank you", or "Thank" in the title.

1. Thank You, Mr. Falker  by Patricia Polacco - This is a book that celebrates how great teachers can be.

2. Bear Says Thanks by Karma Wilson - This is a cute book where Bear wants to make a big meal for all of his friends, but his cupboards are bare.

3. Thanksgiving is for Giving Thanks by Margaret Sutherland - This is one I've not yet read. But it looks super cute. It's about recognizing what you are thankful for.

4. Berenstain Bears Give Thanks by Michael Berenstain & Jan Berenstain - I grew up on the Berenstain Bears. This one wasn't around when I was a child, but it's a sweet story.

5. Sarah Gives Thanks by Michael Allegra - This is another one I've not read. It's about how Thanksgiving became a national holiday.

6. I Thank God for This Day: A Veggie Tales Book by Phil Vischer - I remember watching Madame Blueberry when I was in college. This is the Veggie Tales video that this book is from. Junior Asparagus learns to thank God for each and every day whether he has a lot or a little.

7. Thank You, Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parrish - I grew up on the Amelia Bedelia books. I loved how everything turns out perfect even though she takes things so literally.

8. Thanksgiving Day Thanks by Laura Malone Elliott - I've not read this one either. But it looks really cute. It's about Sam trying to figure out what he is thankful for.

9. Rufus & Ryan Give Thanks by Kathleen Long Bostrom - When 4 year old  Ryan is stuck inside on a rainy day, his mom suggests that he and his stuffed monkey go on a treasure hunt around the house looking for things they are thankful for.

10. Thanksgiving Is...by Gail Gibbons - This one tells what Thanksgiving is about, and no, I've not read it either.

As a bonus today, I found the Veggie Tales song "The Thankfulness Song" from the Madame Blueberry video. It's fitting for this Thanksgiving week. Enjoy it. It's less than a minute in length.
