How to keep young children busy and happy in the exciting days before a big holiday is a challenge for every teacher and parent. Kathy Ross, with thirty years of teaching and nursery-school experience, has answers by the dozens. In this title, she and illustrator Sharon Lane Holm tackle one of the more difficult holidays, Thanksgiving, pouring out a cornucopia of inexpensive, fun craft projects for youngsters. From an elaborate Pilgrim girl sleeve puppet to a frankly silly bouncing turkey toy, Ross covers every aspect of this American holiday. There are crafts that deal with the historic origins of the day, crafts that emphasize the spectacular meal that is the traditional highlight for most families, and even crafts to remind youngsters of the feast's essential meaning, thankfulness. Most of the supplies are available in any craft store or around the house, and the step-by-step instructions are well written and clearly, colorfully illustrated. Some of the projects are even useful or decorative enough to outlive the day. This is a book that any primary-grade teacher or parent of young children would appreciate. 2006, Millbrook Press, Ages 5 to 9.
