    MY THOUGHTS: SARAH GIVES THANKS:HOW THANKSGIVING BECAME A NATION

    MY THOUGHTS:
    SARAH GIVES THANKS:HOW THANKSGIVING BECAME A NATIONAL HOLIDAY by Mike Allegra,illustrated by David C. Gardner is an exciting Children's books/Holidays/America Thanksgiving. This story of Sarah Josepha Hale, a young widow with small children. A young woman who would not stop until she made Thanksgiving a National holiday. An inspiring story! She remarried in 1813 to David Hale, a lawyer, who encouraged her, she published a few pieces of poetry with her husbands encouragement. A widow once again, Sarah earned her living by writing. She was also the editress of a Ladies magazine. On Oct 3, 1863, Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a National holiday on the last Thursday of November. Sarah did many things for women's rights and was a remarkable woman. A must read!
    Did you know?.....Who helped make some of the National Landmarks noted? Who wrote the novel to condemn slavery? and Who wrote "Mary Had a Little Lamb"? To learn more on this remarkable lady you must read "Sarah Gives Thanks: How Thanksgiving Became a National Holiday" you will not regret reading the life of Sarah Josepha Hale. Educators,young readers and older students will enjoy this wonderful story with beautiful illustrations. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
