Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The Rockwells (Halloween Day, 1997, etc.) demystify a great American holiday for the preschool set. Among the mysteries revealed are why turkey is always on the menu along with cranberry sauce and corn bread. In simple, straightforward language, the author relates the history of the first Thanksgiving through the eyes of a preschooler. Students in Mrs. Madoff's class enact a play about the events surrounding the first gathering; every character recites a piece of Thanksgiving lore while describing the things for which one can be grateful. Throughout the book, the generosity and goodwill among the Pilgrims and Wampanoag is underscored, providing a stellar example of how two disparate groups achieved a mutual goal of survival. The beguiling illustrations feature doe-eyed children and include several historical "snap shots" depicting events from the time of the first Thanksgiving. An agreeable, unbiased explanation of a cherished day. (Picture book. 2-5)

    Thanksgiving Class Fun

    My daughter was doing lots of Thanksgiving activities in her preschool, so this book dovetailed very nicely with her life at the moment. It is very colorful and full of nice details that you can point out and discuss. The structure of this story is framed by a class putting on a Thanksgiving play. It helped us talk about Thanksgiving and working together in class at the same time.

    O.K. But Not A Return Hit

    This book is best read after the child/children are familiar with the historical background of Thanksgiving. The children in my classroom enjoyed the illustrations with the students in the story which then led to a discussion about the first Thanksgiving. Sad to say it was not voted as a book to read again.
