It is time to put on those Thanksgiving pants! You know the ones that give a little, allowing a little extra room for those scrumptious dishes we wait for all year! In this traditionally soft childlike story of wonder that many of us love so much, Schulz includes the usual Peanuts gang. This picture book offers a lesson in what it means to be thankful and the importance of giving. The book starts off with a conversation between Charlie Brown and Lucy; as she yanks the football away just before he kicks it, she says, “Isn’t it peculiar, Charlie Brown, how some traditions just slowly fade away?” It is a great start because Charlie soon faces the challenge of making Thanksgiving dinner. With the help of Snoopy and a few others, he makes a sweet treat and otherwise non-traditional holiday meal. This sets his friends all awry; but soon they find out what it means to be grateful and learn that sometimes although tradition changes, it can still hold an element of warmth and comfort. Charlie Brown stories are wonderful for the holidays. Intended for children of all ages, this book combines a holiday celebration with a group of kids America readers love. The soothing and familiar illustrations depict exactly what one would imagine in reading it. The scenery has a watercolor effect, and each detailed and well organized illustration expresses much more than the words on the page. Readers will notice immediately within the background images is the shadowing. This almost makes the scenes more life-like. Schulz has captured each character’s personality while challenging the reader to consider what Thanksgiving is all about. A must-read for all turkey lovers! Reviewer: Chelsea Nichole Peyton; Ages 7 to 9.

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

The book is a good narrative of the beloved television special, 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' however, if you purchased this thinking it would be a charming picture book - think again. There is only a picture every 3 pages or so, and the size is only about 3 1/4 inches. This book may be suitable for a kid 7-10 who may want a tiny little book that will fit in their pocket, but is not generally suitable for a personal library or public library, for that matter.

My grandchildren ages 3 and 5 thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially decorating the pages with the stickers. This story was on TV the night they worked on this and the 3 year enjoyed watching the story afterward. Would really like more of these books with stickers.

Terribly disappointed! Pay attention to the size of book. Very misleading by picture!
