In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to share with you three books I'm thankful for. These books show many acts of kindness throughout their pages and are good guidelines to being a better person.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
I am really thankful for Anne of Green Gables because I think the characters are very sweet to each other and I feel like Anne is a lot like me. She's curious, a bit stubborn, and she's smart even though she makes some bad decisions. She also has a large imagination and she uses it in her everyday life.
Through this book, I've learned a lot about myself and how sometimes books can feel very similar to real life.
Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
I'm thankful for the heart and overall compassion I feel for the characters in Indian and the Cupboard when I read it. These characters are written like they are more then words out in a fiction story. It feels like this each person could have been real or the story could have happened some how.
After I read it, this book makes me joyful because I feel for these characters and in the end, they all get their own happy ending.
Charlotte's Web by E. B. White
In this Charlotte's Web, I'm drawn and thankful for the way almost all of the characters show care toward one another by having each other's backs when any problem comes along.
I find myself shocked about the kindness Wilbur and Charlotte demonstrate to each other all throughout the book until even the very last words.
I think the reason why I'm so thankful for these books at this time in my life is because I want to be a better person. Through these books, I get many ideas on what a true friend does and how to be more selfless.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving and please let me know what you're thankful for in the comments!
