Bunting, Eve. A Turkey for Thanksgiving. Illustrated by Diane de Groat. New York: Clarion Books, 1991.
It’s Thanksgiving time. Each year, I introduce my students to Thanksgiving themed fiction. A Turkey for Thanksgiving is a delightful book with a surprise ending.
Everyone wants a turkey for thanksgiving, right? Mrs. Moose is no different. She has already invited Rabbit, Porcupine, Mr. and Mrs. Goat, and Sheep. She sends Mr. Moose off to find a turkey. Bunting has written a text that appeals to young children and deGroat’s illustrations go beyond the text making this a great book to read to younger children – or one non-readers can “read” on their own.
Who do you invite to your Thanksgiving feast?
