This time on The Children’s Hour, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving in a musical special dedicated to gratitude, family, and appreciation of each another and the Earth. We’re finding the joy in every moment, in this Thanksgiving musical Children’s Hour.

The science is clear that focusing on being grateful actually makes us happier. That’s why it’s so important to take a moment to pause from the daily rush, and count our blessings, including our precious time we have with one another, and the bounty of our planet Earth. 

We want to say Thank You! to all our contributing listeners who are making The Children’s Hour possible every single week. You clicked on that “Donate” button, and are on our team to produce the show.

From all of us at The Children’s Hour, we wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!

This episode was produced by Katie Stone, with help from our Senior Producer Christina Stella. Gus Tafoya helped with our transcripts. Many thanks to the independent children’s musicians who make every show better with their great tunes.
