It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This is a favorite holiday for Latinos because it brings together all the things we love: spending time with family and good friends while eating delicious food. It's also a great time to teach little ones about the true meaning of el Día de Acción de Gracias. In other words, we can take advantage of this day to teach or kids about gratitude and being thankful for even the smallest things in our lives. One of the easiest ways to do that is by reading them books like the ones below, which happen to be bilingual or in Spanish.

This is one of my favorite books to read to my children this time of year. It was written by prolific children’s author Pat Mora and it's perfect for little ones because it explains the true meaning of the holiday. The simple story is about a boy and all the things he is thankful for. I always have my kids make lists with the things they're thankful for.
