Harvest Days is a story about how holidays are celebrated around the world. I would use this in my K-2nd grade classroom to read aloud to them during thanksgiving time to teach my students about what other holidays look like around the world.

I know libraries struggle with texts about Thanksgiving and harvest. This is a good one that focuses on the multicultural aspects of harvest, gathering, and thanksgiving. And not just the American accounting of it.

I love this colorful book that explores 12 different harvest festivals celebrated around the world (Liberia, South Korea, and Iran, to name a few). These festivals all give thanks for the food that sustains them and for the hands and animals responsible for growing the food.
