Customer Reviews

Its so difficult to find a good book about Thanksgiving, and this is an easy to read and understand story.

I bought this for my 2 year old (she's usually ok with 3-5 year old suggested age) but it seems like it would be much better for 4 years and up.

It is a great story, put in an alphabetical format and backed up by some great illustrations; very fun and original.

This is my 2-year-old son's new favorite book. We've read it every night since we bought it two weeks ago. I love the fact that it narrates the alphabet and the artwork is very cute. This is a great gift for any child. Hopefully, there will be more of these for other holidays.

I bought this book for my niece and we loved it. It is a great story, put in an alphabetical format and backed up by some great illustrations; very fun and original. Great job by both author and artist. Had to look up one word too - Pompion. Glad it stretched both our vocabularies. A visual treat.

Really odd book - looks like it's for 3 and 4 year olds, but has a vocabulary that would be difficult for a 10 year old to follow. It tackles some complex myths of the Thanksgiving narrative. It's pretty long for this age group too. I read it to my son's preschool class and they stared at me like I was speaking another language. For a long time.

This book is wonderful! I loved the "storyline" set to the alphabet, the great information about Thanksgiving, and the artwork couldn't be better! A fantastic combination! I purchased one for each of my grandsons and one for my niece! And best of all, the kids love it!

Teaching history in rhyme to little readers...impressive! The great rhymes and lilting sound of the words wraps the reader into the story. My grandchildren loved this book. Want to get a copy for my kindergartener's classroom.
