What do you think makes for the perfect Thanksgiving Day experience? Percy Isaac Gifford has ten simple Thanksgiving Rules to make the most out of this delicious holiday. From getting dressed, helping to clean the house, greeting guests ("short=sweet"); through eating the meal (e.g., "the early bird gets the turkey); to the end ("life is sweeter when you eat sweets"), Percy has it all figured out. But does he think that Thanksgiving is only turkey and sweet potatoes, or will he discover the true recipe for a great Thanksgiving? Laurie Friedman's rambunctious, rhyming text, along with Teresa Murfin's caricature style illustrations, makes for a fun-filled yet meaningful picture of Thanksgiving that will appeal to children on their level and help them to understand that beneath all the hustle and bustle of the day, there is something truly important there. Any book that encourages youngsters to be thankful gets a high five from me.
