Youth Thanksgiving DVDs

Remember the good old fashioned, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, which was originally broadcasted in 1973? Re-live the magic and check out this DVD to watch with your family for this year's Thanksgiving! The library also has the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving in Blu-Ray format. If you are looking for fun, yet informational DVDs that teach children about the first Thanksgiving, we have those too. Take a look at Rabbit Ears : Squanto & The First Thanksgiving. This DVD tells the story of Pawtuxet Indian who was captured and then escaped and returned to his childhood home. He then helped the Pilgrims establish the colony of Plymouth. Or, check out William Bradford : First Thanksgiving if you and your children want to learn more about the history of the first Thanksgiving. If you are feeling like you just want to warm up to a children's holiday favorite, check out Winnie The Pooh: Seasons of Giving, which includes "A Winnie The Pooh Thanksgiving."
