Booklist Review

Gr. 1^-4. As in their previous holiday books, the authors have produced a book that is both practical and entertaining. Facts about how the pilgrims traveled to this country, what life was like for them, how the first Thanksgiving came about, and how our traditions evolved are interspersed with Thanksgiving riddles, jokes, and fun facts. Instructions for making a paper turkey table decoration are also provided. Connelly's delightful illustrations combine with the easy-to-read text to increase the appeal of a book that will enrich holiday collections. --Helen Rosenberg


Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-A fun combination of facts, riddles, and crafts. Coverage of traditional topics is offered, including information about the Mayflower, the significance of the North American Indians at the first Thanksgiving, and the Pilgrims' daily lives. The book also mentions other Thanksgiving and harvest festivals that are celebrated in other countries. The watercolor illustrations are cartoonlike and pleasing. They contain the appropriate smiling faces and festive fall colors, with many pumpkins, cornucopias, and harvest vegetables decorating the pages.-Christie J.
