Thanksgiving: The True Story-Penny Colman examines the holiday that many Americans celebrate every November. Are the stories you’ve heard actually true? What was the first Thanksgiving like? Pick up this non-fiction book about Thanksgiving and read more about the origination of its traditions and what really happened during the first Thanksgiving.
The Giver-Jonas thinks his life is perfect. He lives in a seemingly utopian society with no emotions and no choices until he receives training from The Giver at age 12. It is now time for Jonas to learn about all the pain and pleasure that life holds. After seeing how Jonas’ society is, this book will make you grateful you live in today’s society.
The Last Lecture-This book is not only touching, but a fun read as well. Randy Pausch is a professor who was asked what his last lecture would be. Since he was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, it wasn’t too much of a stretch for him to imagine. His lecture is not depressing, as one would imagine, but instead it is uplifting and inspirational.
