Editorial Reviews

Review

Turkeys, turkeys everywhere! Here's an enjoyable down to earth (and up in the trees) chronicle, following the now ubiquitous wild critters through the seasons - just as we might see them - in simple verse, energetic art and factual afterword. --Prof. Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Library Science

When do you normally think about turkeys? Isn t it usually around Thanksgiving? But, of course, turkeys live year round. Jenny is a curious girl who likes to observe nature. In the spring, she finds arrow-shaped footprints and striped feathers that lead her to a flock gobbling wild turkeys looking for seeds to eat. In the summer she sees the turkey babies as they hatch and run. In autumn, as it turns cooler, the turkeys roost up in the trees. And what do you imagine turkeys do in the winter? Do you think that they might slip and slide in the snow like the rest of us?

Not only does this charming book provide information about the life cycle of wild turkeys in a woodland habitat and reinforce the progression of the seasons for children, it also encourages observation skills in youngsters as they look at nature. In the back, Jenny's Journal gives more facts about turkeys, plus there are a list of fun things to do and an animal tracks guessing game. Cathryn Falwell, who has written and illustrated over eighteen children s books, accents her rhyming text with unique illustrations of block prints over collages which are made from cut and torn paper with all sorts of things from nature, such as bark, leaves, feathers, and even wasps nests. More downloadable activities for this book are located at the publisher s website. Gobble, Gobble is a young nature lover s delight! --Wayne S. Walker, Home School Book Review

Youngsters who know turkey only as the Thanksgiving entree will be intrigued by Cathryn Falwell s informative, rhyming romp with wild turkeys through the seasons. The book opens with an engaging mystery. In her large backyard, Jenny comes across arrow-shaped footprints and brown feathers and hears a funny gobbling sound. What can it be? The page turn reveals a flock of turkeys, and subsequent pages show strutting toms in spring, hens and poults in summer and turkeys amid colorful leaves and bare trees in fall and winter, respectively. Youngsters will also enjoy searching for bits of natural material (bark, leaves, feathers) in Falwell s enticing mixed-media illustrations. Jenny is a wonderful model of a child fully alive to the natural world and respectful of its denizens, which include not only turkeys but deer, chickadees, cardinals and squirrels. Additional wild-turkey facts and directions for creating a cut-paper fowl can be found in the back. --Mary Quattlebaum, Washington Parent
