1959 Thanksgiving is what we Have Book, by Bettina Peterson, Illustrated by Jan Norton,

This book is about Two children, current residents of Plymouth, Massachusetts, prepare for the annual town Thanksgiving celebration. Parallels are drawn between today's holiday and the events of the first Thanksgiving. Focusing upon the lives of the Winthrop family, early settlers, the children draw parallels between early America and today. In reenacting the landing of the Pilgrims--a comparisons pageant held in Plymouth--the children, six and eight, realize the broader ramifications of giving thanks for one's home and its bounties. A festive tone animates the fictional setting of this essentially instructive text.

Note: this copy is in good condition, great color illustrations. I give it a 9 on a scale of 1-10. This was a church library edition.
