    Classic story for the young reader

    Most girls have grown up reading Little Women and possibly other books by famed author, Louisa May Alcott. She wrote beloved tales of life and holds an esteemed place in the hall of famous authors and trail blazers. Today we're going to look at a children's very short adaptation of Miss Alcott's story in picture book form - An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving by Louisa May Alcott published by Ideal Books.

    About the book: A sweet and humorous Thanksgiving tale from the beloved author of Little Women. When the Bassett parents are called away in the midst of busy preparations for Thanksgiving dinner, the children are left in the care of their eldest siblings. The spirited young Tilly and Eph, along with their merry band of siblings, decide to forge ahead with a Thanksgiving feast, despite their limited culinary skills. After a haphazard day full of the unintentional use of catnip, a run-in with a questionable bear, and other hijinks, the family is finally able to reunite for a truly old-fashioned good time. Lively watercolors add to the humor and delight of this tale of a Thanksgiving feast that almost wasn't.

    My thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed reading this shortened version of An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving. The illustrations are charming and speak volumes to the character of the individuals in the story - what they are thinking, what they are feeling, and how they are behaving. The artist uses bright bold colors as well as soft hues to bring realism and vibrancy to the story.

    As usual, a tale told by Miss Alcott is a good read at any age. This little book is a good introduction to Miss Alcott's writings for the young reader. Perhaps it will leave them hankering for a more thorough reading of this particular story (see link below) as well as full volumes of Miss Alcott's works.

    I encourage you to get your young child reading the classics and here is a good starting point.

    DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy of An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was received and opinions expressed are solely my own. I was not required to render a positive review.
