the Night Before Thanksgiving
Story and Pictures by Dav Pilkey.
This cute rhythmic book is a parody of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas". The book captivates children with its lively text and bright pictures while telling a story about a group of children taking a field trip to Farmer Mack Nuggett's miniature turkey farm. The children have a wonderful time visiting the farm until a little girl asks Farmer Nuggett about the turkeys' Thanksgiving fate. All of the children are astonished by the thought of their friends' fate, so they devise a plan. The children stuff their feathered friends under their shirts and head for home filled with "hot turkey stuffing". The next day is obviously Thanksgiving where all of the turkeys are had for dinner - as guests!
My children really enjoy this book with it's dual theme: Thanksgiving and kids save the day! I would recommend this book to 3 & older, due to it's connection of living things and food. My son's 1st grade class also read it last year & thought it was hilarious!
