2.  A Thanksgiving Play On Tuesday Breslin’s class performed the play he wrote about the first Thanksgiving. It was adorable. We are so proud to be his parents, and so thankful that his teacher gets him.

3. One Last Day as a Father of Three

Our beautiful baby boy came on Thanksgiving day, so I got to spend all of Wednesday with my three oldest kids. We read books, watched a movie, had dinner with family, and spent some time at the kids’ museum in our town. It was the perfect day.

Hanging out at the museum with the kids.

4. A Nerdy Post with Mrs. Sharp

My wife and I were the Nerdy bloggers on Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed reflecting on our journey of raising young readers.

5. All The Bright Places

I think that All The Bright Places is a special special book. I hope that every YA reading person in the universe gets a chance to read in in 2015. It’s one of those books that kids need to have access to. I hope the readers in your life find it as powerful as I did.

  2. My twins (now 12) arrived on Thanksgiving weekend (mind you in October – Canadian Thanksgiving) It really does have special meaning. I remember people passing around newborns and sharing a meal together. Congratulations Sharp family! Lots to celebrate. And well done to your little writer. Readers are writers – some adorable evidence!
