Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Chelsea Nichole Peyton
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.
