Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is similar in structure as "The House That Jack Built." In the first rhyme peas and carrots are introduced as a Thanksgiving food. Next mashed potatoes are added, and the rhyme about the peas and carrots is repeated. Food is added to the mix until there are rhymes representing the family¿s entire Thanksgiving dinner. The llustrations by Deborah Zemke are in the vain of folk art and feature a happy family celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. The book ends with pages which fold out to reveal the entire table and everyone at it giving thanks.
