Every year as more and more retailers are opening up earlier than ever on Thanksgiving, I look forward to the P.C. Richard & Sons advertisement they publish in many newspapers across the nation at this time of the year.
I applaud them...
Don't shop on Thanksgiving. Don't fret, the almighty sales will be there long past Thanksgiving day!
It's time to take back the Thanksgiving holiday!
Best wishes,Donna M. McDine

The above is a card my son and I made for his dear cousin. Today I am thankful for things big and little: my family, friends, health, home, my work, construction paper, tracing-hand turkeys, time to spend with my little son making art together.
Wherever you are, whatever you are eating, and whomever you are with, I hope you are happy, healthy, and thankful for all that makes you smile.
Get your notebooks out. Families can provide lots of juicy content for a future book. Take some notes for later use.
Write down as much as you can about the kitchen, the smells, the kids, the food, the interactions between members of the family, the way they are dressed and stories told around the table.
It doesn’t matter what type of book you are writing, the day is ripe with material for a book.
If you are planning on going out on Black Friday to get a jump on your holiday shopping, remember buying a book is a wonderful gift on so many levels.
Not only will it bring entertainment and joy to the person receiving the book, but it will help sustain our industry and help out a fellow writer or illustrator.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family.

And, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This year, I'm thankful to have enough. (Family, friends, work, food... and so on. Enough is good.)
This is the most beautiful TV ad ever. I don't how many times I've watched it, but I laugh and cry every single time. It's a little something to get you into that holiday spirit and to remind ourselves of the beautiful and important things in life.
This Thanksgiving we have to be thankful for many things.

I know I am very thankful first of all for my husband and kids. They are my biggest joy and inspiration every day.
