Last year, Allie and the girls had front row seats to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade march down Broadway. This year, like many of us, they'll watch from the comfort of their couch. But no matter how you experience the magic of the parade, they discovered a must-read book on the story behind the balloons. It's a great way for your kids to learn some history and connect with others at Thanksgiving.
