PreS-Gr 2-This Thanksgiving tale begins with Max picking out a turkey at the supermarket and ends as he and his family say good-bye to all their company. What happens in between is told in the pattern of "This Is the House That Jack Built." The turkey is roasted, Max's sister kneads bread, Dad stirs the cranberries, and the guests bring all sorts of dishes. As the day progresses, Max plays with his cousins, the table is set, and so on. As his mother brings out the "crispy and golden" turkey, she trips and the mouthwatering bird goes flying into the fish tank. Still, Grandpa declares: "No turkey? No problem! I'm hungry-Let's eat!" and the diners enjoy the rest of the feast. The soft illustrations, rendered in watercolor, pencil, and ink, add humor and complement the activities in this holiday tale of food, family, and that occasional mishap that will be remembered for years to come. A perfect read-aloud.-Olga R. Barnes, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County, NC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
