Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Elste
This is a lovely account of the celebration of Thanksgiving from HarperCollins' "I Can Read" series. Each facet of Thanksgiving is covered, from school projects to the landing of the pilgrims to the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Even the turkeys have a page devoted to them. This delightful story by Jack Prelutsky, the first Children's Poet Laureate, captures every essence of this special day. Even with all the information given for this holiday, the story has a warmth and natural charm that all children can relate to. One chapter, "I Went Hungry on Thanksgiving" addresses the simple feeling of a child who feels she cannot eat because of her new braces. The poetry is naturally outstanding, as are the illustrations. Hafner's drawings match the text perfectly, add a bit of humor and charm, and are well-placed so as to not interfere with the text. From beginning to end, this is about as perfect as you can get for a holiday book for children.
