Giving Thanks: How Thanksgiving Became a National Holiday

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.

New York Times bestselling author Denise Kiernan tells the story of how Hale spent decades — sending letters to multiple presidents — to fight for a holiday that would celebrate unity and gratitude. But it also goes beyond America's borders to contemplate how thankfulness is a value recognized around the world... and beyond a single holiday, to remind us that every day should be full of thanksgiving for the good things we have. This beautifully illustrated picture book offers a look at the timeless and global power of gratitude.
