Thanksgiving


Written And Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

It’s Fall and class trip time!

Eight adventurous young students set off to visit a farm in the country and come home with a surprising new love for turkeys.  How will the teacher respond?  And the farmer?  In a wonderful and whimsical turn of events, the turkeys become part of everyone’s Thanksgiving celebration  – as invited guests instead of main dishes!

I really enjoy books like this that are simple and fun and incorporate kids of various colors and nationalities into a lively story.  This is a sweet, funny, light-hearted book, perfect for reading as part of Fall festivities.

Everyone knows the stereotyped images of the First Thanksgiving – but what was it really like?  And what was it like from the perspective of the Native Americans who shared their bounty and knowledge with the “coat-men” who arrived and lived nearby.

This beautifully photographed book shares the hopes, dreams and daily tasks and adventures of a young boy of the Wampanoag tribe. Aside from an engaging story and photographs taken with the assistance and advice of the Wampanoag Indian Program at Plimouth Plantation, there is also a glossary of terms and additional information about the Wampanoag people, many of whose descendents still live in the area of Massachusetts and Rhode Island (United States). This is a wonderful “living history” book to share with kids of all ages.

Suggested Reading Level – Grades 2 – 5
