Buyer Beware: This book is about Thanking God for his/hew love, not "Thanksgiving"
on November 19, 2013
Beware! Listen to the reviews on here that let you know this book overemphasizes God's role in Thanksgiving. If that's how you see Thanksgiving, then this is the book for you. If you are of the mind that Thanksgiving is a truly American holiday, where we can give thanks to whomever we thank (which is not always "God" for some families), steer clear. I was not comfortable reading this book to my son; we do not emphasize religion or God in our household, which is our choice, and I tried to modify the book to reflect our views, but the whole moral of the book is that "Thanksgiving is a special day to praise the Lord above. We take this time to say: 'God, thank you for your love!'" That's not what I think Thanksgiving is, and it's not what I am trying to teach my son.
This taught me to read reviews and, when available, to review the book online before purchasing. This is going in the 'donate' bin.
