A Kid's Review on October 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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!

I work with about 70 kids from ages 6 to 10, with varied social backgrounds and different developmental levels, in small therapy groups of 1 to 4. I'm pretty good at selling a book I want to use and making it fun or at least interesting, but this book just didn't jive with the kids. There isn't a story to grab on to, and the vocabulary makes it a little distant to younger children. The older kids found it boring as well. I like the idea of the book, but the central framework, the alphabet theme, comes off as forced. Probably going to donate this one.

Any kids book about history which actually tries to get the story right rather than telling old myths is rare treasure. This one specifically admits it is clearing up myths and misnomers so it would be great for kids who have had the watered down Thanksgiving story and already know a bit. It introduces facts in a fun way with multiple gimicks - kids are in a school play about Thanksgiving; goes through the alphabet with a word about Thanksgiving for each letter; rhymes. My daughter is 3 and is a bit young for this book. However she loves the pictures and likes to point out the letters as we go through the alphabet. So it works for younger kids as well as old and is a good book to grow with your child.

Captivating pictures! Excellent vocabulary. My son loved the Thanksgiving alphabet theme. We both learned some great facts about Thanksgiving. I highly recommend it.
