Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Natasha Wing takes a flight of fancy in The Night Before Thanksgiving, illus. by Tammie Lyon. Based on Moore's poem, the tale begins: " 'Twas the night before Thanksgiving,/ and all through the nation/ families got ready/ for the big celebration." (Aug.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
"'Twas the night before Thanksgiving/ and all through the nation/ families got ready/ for the big celebration." Sound familiar? A clever take-off of the Clement Clarke Moore original, this version is a thoroughly modern portrayal of one family's Thanksgiving preparations. The lively illustrations portray a houseful of relatives arriving by car, plane and train. Mom is frantically preparing the food with "help" from the kids. Cousins arrive and soon the house is strewn with toys and video games. Finally the feast is prepared and everyone gathers to eat. Young children will enjoy the flow and rhyme of the story. New readers can tackle text that contains some difficult words but is accompanied by lots of visual clues. This is the latest of the "The Night Before..." books in the "Reading Railroad" series. 2001, Grosset & Dunlap, $3.49. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: Cheryl Peterson
