I like this book very much. Jack and Annie are whisked back to the first Thanksgiving in 1621. But they failed to catch eels and clams and burnt Priscilla's Thanksgiving turkey when Jack dropped it into the fire. They found the magic of community, however, in spite of everything.
Read more Magic Tree House books! "High Tide in Hawaii" is coming soon!

This book allows children to experience another time and place. This is an excellent supplement to the elementary curriculum. This book is easy to read and makes learning about history, fun. This book will teach children about a way of life that they are unfamiliar with. Students will learn how people back then dressed, how they hunted and prepared food, and how they worked together as a community. Children will learn more than just history from this book. This book emphasizes the value of others and of working together. This book will also get children excited about reading and it will also encourage them to write and to keep their own personal journal of adventures. This book is an excellent teaching resource.

Format: Paperback
The story startes out when Jack and his little sister Annie are on their way to a place called Plymouth. At first they had no idea where they were until Jack was hung after he accidently steped into a trap; they finally found out where they were.

First, this story takes place during the time of the pilgrims coming to the United States from England on a ship well-known as the Mayflower. The story's sequence startes when Jack and Annie are introduced to all the pilgrims and an indian; his name Squanto. Sooner on in the story Jack and Annie learn how to hunt and fish for there own food. While in a women's house Jack learned how to cook over the fire. But, they run into a problem; they didn't know how things ran around there. But a women nice enough told them just that. Her nam was Prinscilla.

Last in the story they have wonderful and unforgiving diner. Also known as the First Thanksgiving Feast. Jack and Annie enjoyed their time in Plymouth because they have learned as much as I did.

I thought that this book was an awesome experience for me because I have learned alot about the pilgrims and what it was like back in the day.

The book title I am reviewing is Thanksgiving on Thursday by Mary Pope Osborne. I think this book deserves four stars. The story is about when Jack and Annie go back in 1621 and have dinner with the Wanapogs and the Pilgrims. The problem is when Jack and Annie accidentally threw the turkey in the fire. Another problem is when Jack and Annie can't find clams and eels. I would recommend this book to my mom. Other books by Mary Pope Osborne are High Tide in Hawaii, Twister on Tuesday and much more!

My 1st graders loved this book. The text allows the child to form mental images of what the very first Thanksgiving was like. The class is looking forward to "Christmas in Camelot" as our next read aloud chapter book.

Jack and Annie travel back in time to the year of 1621,the time of the Pilgrams.Jack and Annie was sent by Morgan Le Fay to find the art of magic. Jack and Annie were in a forest and spied on the pilgrams when they got there, but Annie saw a dog which scared Jack and alerted the pilgrams. Jack told this fib to Squanto and the pilgrams. After the fib, all of the kids went hunting and gathering while Jack and Annie went into the water, in search for eels and clams in the ocean. After, they went to a house and cooked turkey for the feast. Jack ruined the turkey and felt horrible. It was all right and they had a feast outdoors. Jack and Annie returned home after finding the magic of community.
