This cute book counts down the 10 fat turkeys-great for the holidays. One by one, each turkey leaves the fence in a creative way. This book is good for the pre-schooler learning to count or learning the concept of subtraction. The illustrations are great! The turkeys looks as if they have their own personalities, and their facial expressions are adorable. Great buy!

If you're looking for a serious book about Thanksgiving, then 10 Fat Turkeys is not the book for you. This book is about ten fat turkeys walking along a fence, when one by one they fall, break the fence, and perch on a tree instead. It's funny, and intended to appeal to the very young, or young at heart. The illustrations are bright, and bold, and will appeal to young children say 1 to 5-years. My son laughs when I read this book, and now at five he's starting to read it to himself.

10 Fat Turkey's mimics the pattern in Melanie Gerth's, Ten Little Ladybugs, although Gerth's book is sweet, this work is just plain silly.

10 fat turkeys fooling on a fence.
"Looky!" says a silly turkey, swinging from a vine.
GOBBLE GOBBLE WIBBLE WOBBLE whoops! Now there are...9.

It's a lesson in simple subtraction, and one we enjoy reading after Halloween. It's not a Thanksgiving book per se, there is no mention of the holiday, or even the season. It just a fun, nonsense book for little tykes.

My children, aged 2 and 3, love "the tookey book" as they call it. Frankly, I had my doubts about whether or not they'd like it when I flipped through it for the first time. The third or fourth time I said "GOBBLE GOBBLE WIBBLE WOBBLE" they were giggling like mad. They love to count the turkeys on each page and point out what silly things each turkey is doing. When they "read" it on their own I can hear choruses of "GOBBLE WOBBLE WOBBLE!" coming from their playroom. This is a very fun book, I'm glad I gave it a try.

I bought the paperback version of this from my son's daycare because Thanksgiving was coming up. I figured it would be a fun holiday book. I was dead wrong. My son (who was 4 months old when I bought it) has LOVED this book! He has loved it ever since I read it to him! If he sees it, he wants me to read it to him. When he's fussy on the changing table, I start quoting the book to him and he settles down and starts giggling! This book is still his favorite book (he's now 11 months old), and we've read it so much that I was THRILLED when I saw it was sold on Amazon as a board book! Now we don't have to try and keep his little hands off it--he can turn the pages himself, and he often likes to flip through the book by himself as well. If I could I'd give this book 10 stars!

Aside from my experience with the book, the drawings are very cute and bright colored, the writing is also very clever and keeps any child's attention. There isn't really a "moral" to the story or anything like that. It's just one of those nonsense books that rhyme and kids love--combine that with the very cute pictures, and this book is a sure fire winner!!

My 17 month old son loves this book. I bought it as a fun holiday book and it's just that. He loves turning the pages and giggles whenever I say 'Gobble Gobble Wibble Wobble'. My son and I have had endless fun reading this book and it's still a favorite a couple of months later.

Countdown books are great for my 3 year old currently. This one starts from 10 which I like versus some of the songs or books which go down from 5. This was my daughter's favorite Thanksgiving book this year. It isn't particularly seasonal so it could be used year round. The turkeys are funny and illustrations are great. A fun book.

My 19 month old really enjoys this book. It helps with learning to count. What she seems to like the most are the catchy phrases: Gooble Gobble Wibble Wobble do a noodle dance. I recommend this to any child who enjoys books.

Nothing about thanksgiving. I just assumed since it was turkeys. It's turkeys sitting on a fence and 1 falls off on each page. Kind of cute.. Just not what I expected. My own mistake in assuming though.
