    2. My local library always puts out a selection of seasonal or holiday-themed books, and I like to pick a couple out for the kids each time we go. Every year around Thanksgiving I recall that the selection of Thanksgiving books isn't very good. They are all sort of dull non-fiction or too complex to hold my three-year-old's attention. This year, though, I found "This is the Turkey". It's my favorite of the Thanksgiving books I've encountered so far. Written in the style of "This is the House That J [...]


    3. This text is focuses on preparations for Thanksgiving with a rhythm and rhyme like "This is the House That Jack Built" The turkey "to shout about" is chosen by Max and goes into the oven on schedule. Dad works on preparing cranberries, ruby and red, while sister kneads breadfamily and friends arrive adding to the story. When the moment finally arrives for dinnerwell, lets just say that the picture made all the children at my storytime giggle and laugh! Max and his family have a marvelous dinner, [...]


    4. In this book the author talks about a modern day Thanksgiving dinner, and also the reasons it is celebrated. This book does a good job of showing that a modern day thanksgiving including many different people and even blended families. Questions- How does your family celebrate Thanksgiving?Does your family celebrate Thanksgiving or do they celebrate something?


    5. My 2-year-old and I really enjoyed this book. It talks about family, friends, neighbors and the usual goings-on associated with Thanksgiving. The pictures were bright and colorful and the story is not too long so he's able to attend to the whole book. It was a great first book to talk about what will happen at Thanksgiving for our family.


    6. Average story that takes place on Thanksgiving.Written in the same style as "This is the house that Jack built".Excerpt from the book:"This is the uncle with salad greens;this is the aunt with her famous beanswho kisses the sister, admires the bread,and praises the cranberries, ruby-red,while sniffing the turkey that's roasting awayfor the guests who are coming on Thanksgiving Day."


    7. This book was used as a read-aloud on Thanksgiving Eve at one of my elementary schools. It's a sort of "this is the house that Jack built" version of a turkey catastrophe. The students enjoyed it and correctly identified the moral of the story.


    8. This is an older book, published in 2000, but the catchy rhyme written in partial cumulative pattern and soft illustrations are perfect for reading aloud with your preschooler. Paige Billin-Frye captures the warmth of the holiday and the loving emotions felt by all, even if there is a disaster!


    9. I like that the emphasis on this book is the sharing of a meal with family and friends and even though we get excited about the food, it isn't the food that make the holiday special, but the people gathered around the table.




    10. Sort of follows the 'House that Jack Built' rhyme scheme. It sequences the preparation of the Thanksgiving feast, and what happens when things don't go quite as planned.


    11. 29 months - Sometimes things go a bit wrong in the kitchen but that's ok, Thanksgiving is about family and friends and spending the time together reflecting and being thankful.



    12. This was a fun book and the storytime kids laughed a lot when the turkey ended up in the fish tank. Good thoughts about Thanksgiving and its meaning, and what is important.




    13. This story details all the work that goes into preparing for Thanksgiving. From picking the turkey, to preparing the food, to gathering with friends and family to enjoy the meal. If I were to use this in a lesson, I would use it when discussing Thanksgiving and cultural traditions. I would have students share their cultural traditions when it comes to Thanksgiving. I would discuss a little bit of the real story of Thanksgiving.
