We Gather Together (Young Readers Edition)

Stories of Thanksgiving from Then to Now

Fiction: Thanksgiving is an American holiday that began when the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock and met the Indigenous tribes already living there. Fact: Thanksgiving celebrations existed before the United States of America and were celebrated in other countries as well. Fiction: George Washington is the person who decided we should celebrate Thanksgiving as a nation at the same time each year. Fact: Sarah Josepha Hale, a magazine editor and author, petitioned five presidents until she convinced Abraham Lincoln to declare a national day of Thanksgiving in November of 1863, starting an annual tradition continuing to this day.

This young readers adaptation of the New York Times bestselling We Gather Together shares the true story of how Thanksgiving became a national holiday, including the key role that Hale played in establishing it as a permanent fixture. Denise Kiernan debunks myths, provides facts, and explains how and why Thanksgiving evolved in the United States the way it did — and what gratitude means to society.
