It’s Time For Thanksgiving
Sechrist and Woolsey
As we start heading into November, I thought I would share this little holiday gem that had not left the shelf in at least 20 years. It might have been longer than that, but the library automated in 1995 so what happened before is anyone’s guess.
This book is actually done by 2 youth librarians and is perfect for anyone wanting to have some themed ideas for a preschool or story time —in the 1950s. It has skits, crafts, poems, and stories that are perfect for a story time or teacher led program. I have a feeling these librarians assembled their best stuff and wrote a book for their fellow youth librarians. This was the 1950s equivalent to a Pinterest board or story time ideas blog.
I think it needs to be retired just on the fact that a few crafts depend on using hatpins.
