Just in time for Thanksgiving, here is a new book introducing little ones to the bustle and spirit of one of my favorite holidays.
Ten Thankful Turkeys by Angela Muse
10 helpful turkeys are preparing for Thanksgiving in this bright autumn tale. One by one they add a piece of the meal or prep for the day. Together they tell the tale of how we gather young and old together and prepare for a day of thanksgiving. Despite the fact that the main course is obviously missing from the buffet, this is a Thanksgiving day full of warmth and love. It displays both the hustle of preparations and the joyful interactions. As a bonus, the back offers fascinating facts about turkeys. Do you know what a baby turkey is called? Or how fast turkeys can fly? Full of rich seasonal vocabulary, pleasant rhymes, and cheerful illustrations, this is a great introduction to Thanksgiving for its youngest participants.
