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.
