"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (Deuteronomy 6:9, ESV)

Reviews - What do customers think about Thanksgiving: A Time to Remember (Family Life Books)?
Wonderful story worth listening to and remembering Dec 12, 2008
Heard portions of it on the radio and decided to buy it. No regrets. This is a wonderful story of Thanksgiving that is worth listening and remembering. Good as a family cuddle event. Highly recommended.
Had to purchase after seeing it at my sisters! Nov 27, 2008
I had the benefit of being able to glance at the book and hear the music before purchasing the item. In regards to the reviewer who did not care for the music selections, I think purchasers should understand what the Thanksgiving holiday is all about. There is more to it then turkey, football, and shopping. This book is a great easy reading reference as to the foundation of this holiday. Yes, many of the songs on the CD are religous based selections however, that is what our country was founded on so it makes sense that those are the types of songs that are included. When I hear the music selections I can almost visualize our forefathers listening to the same type of instruments.
A very good reminder to be Thankful! Nov 24, 2008
Mrs. Rainey does a good job introducing us to many of the difficulties that the early settlers had to face and how their faith in God helped them persevere.
Put God back in Thanksgiving Nov 19, 2008
This book helped us bring God back in Thanksgiving! I have 3 elementary children in public school and they are NEVER taught the real reasons and struggles the Pilgrims endured so many hardships for. We used this book as a devotional for the month of November to remind ourselves what we are celebrating! Wonderful grounding tool for our family. THANK YOU!!
Wonderful book for making Thanksgiving special Dec 8, 2007
I love this book by Barbara Rainey. We get so much mis-information about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving, but Mrs. Rainey sets it all straight with her much-researched book. It's easy to share with friends and family with a wonderful CD of "Thanksgiving carols" to get you excited about Thanksgiving, instead of it marking the beginning of the Christmas season!
