A Thanksgiving Booklist....

A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman. So what do you do when all of the turkeys in town get smart and disappear from town every fall. Why you throw an arts and crafts fair of course. The theme, what else....Turkeys. With a theme like that you need a model. See all of the fun that transpires.
Beauty and the Beaks by Mary Jane and Herm Auch. This is an adorable story of some chickens that try to help a turkey hide when it is Thanksgiving time. Check it out to see what they try.

Little Tom Turkey by Frances Bloxam. This is a nice story of how a turkey goes from a young turkey into a full grown one. The nice part of the story is that it told form the actual turkey's
point of view.
A Turkey For Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting. This book looked so good to us that we some how managed to get two copies out. LOL. It did not disappoint, very sweet. I was going to write something about it but my friend already did. Kate did a great job of explaining the book and shared some of her other favorite thanksgiving stories. So make sure to check her out.
One Is A Feast For A Mouse by Judy Cox. This a really sweet story that has a theme that we should listen to everyday not just Thanksgiving. A mouse comes out of his hole when the Thanksgiving feast is over. He sees a pea and realizes that would make a feast for him. It does stay that way though when he starts to see all of the other things on the table. To put it bluntly he gets little on the greedy side. A mishap happens and he loses it all. At the end though he sees the one green pea and realizes that is enough for him. So the moral of the story, appreciate what you have even if it is tiny.
I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

Mucho blog love back atcha ! ;-)
We had a couple of these in our hands at the library as well, but they only allow you to take so many of a "holiday" book out at a time, and P was unwilling to give up the ones she already had. ;-)
