The Can Do Thanksgiving
By Marion Hess Pomeranc

Review by: Lori Plach

     Thanksgiving is more than just a day of turkey and football. Its a day of thankful hearts and sharing with others who are less fortunate.
The students at Oak Street School are holding a canned food drive. A single can of peas is donated by Dee. Dee wonders where her can of peas will go so she comes up with an idea. She places a yellow sticker on the can when packing it into a box filled with canned items. When a downtown church receives the box, they invite the students to help their volunteers to serve and share a Thanksgiving meal at their soup kitchen. Dee volunteers not knowing that the recipe she makes often with her father will come in handy. A shy, lonely, homeless boy named Tyler comes to the soup kitchen with his mother. Tyler notices Dee because she wears glasses just like his.
      An accident occurs in the kitchen ruining all of the green beans that
were prepared for the meal. Dee runs to the pantry and grabs all the cans that she is able to including the can of peas that she donated. Tyler comes to the kitchen to assist her. At home, Dee and her father always make Veggie Medley. And she offers the recipe to the cook who quickly prepares the dish for the meal. An elderly man gives thanks for the blessings of the day and the meal is enjoyed. Tyler and Dee become
friends and the day ends happily. 
      This is a delightful, wonderfully illustrated book which carries a strong message about the real meanings behind Thanksgiving.
