Debbie Reese of the Nambe Pueblo tribe reviews some Thanksgiving picture books: http://americanindiansinchildrensliterature.blogspot.com/2013/11/looking-for-childrens-books-about.html

Thanksgiving is coming and some of you may be planning Thanksgiving storytimes. While your library will probably have most of the books reviewed by Debbie in your collection because they are popular, you may want to more carefully select which titles you read during storytime in an effort to be culturally competent and inclusive. Debbie only reviews a few titles, but she points out some general areas of concern and things to think about that you can keep in mind as you review other titles yourself.
