I just wanted to make sure you knew that our beloved Five in a Row title, Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin, is back in print thanks to Purple House Press! Purple House Press is a company that specializes in reprinting treasured books that have gone out of print. They are faithful to work on the Five in a Row titles for these crazy Five in a Row mamas who really like to make sure we can get our hands on a title when we want to!
Head on over to Purple House Press to order your copy of Cranberry Thanksgiving so you’re sure to have it to row with your sweet ones this season!

In addition, here are a few Thanksgiving books we enjoy reading each year. These are not meant to be alternative titles to Cranberry Thanksgiving! The lessons in the manual are very specific to that title and that title alone. We just enjoy having wonderful books as part of our Thanksgiving traditions here at our house, and these have become our favorites! Some of them are suggestions I got from Jane Claire initially, and a few we’ve found on our own. I’ve put a star by the ones Jane Claire recommended. I could have included a lot more, but we can all do a search for random Thanksgiving books. I wanted to only include the ones that were our absolute favorites.
These are in order from youngest to oldest and include some fiction and non-fiction for each age group.
