This list is perfect, at the elementary we do displays for each holiday or theme. Thanksgiving is always the hard one, filled mainly with non-fiction. I'll have to add these to the recommendations list.

I don't have a particular favorite but the kids love "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie" and of course the "Berenstain Bears Thanksgiving" is always popular.
