Kristin recently enjoyed ‘Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving, a heartwarming picture book from Captain Underpants author Dav Pilkey. Here is here review:
From the author who brought us the widely popular Dog Man and Captain Underpants series comes a new, one-of-a-kind Thanksgiving tale!
On the night before Thanksgiving, a group of school children take a field trip to visit a turkey farm and meet Farmer Mack Nuggett. The successful and shrewd Farmer Mack Nugget is the proud owner of eight beautifully plump turkeys named Ollie, Stanley, Larry, Moe, Wally, Beaver, Shemp, and Groucho. These friendly and fun-loving turkeys are thrilled to meet the school children and they all have a wonderful time frolicking across the farm together! Unfortunately, when Farmer Mack Nuggett shares his true reason for raising these turkeys the children are horrified and must think quickly on their feet to save these sweet birds. As the trip comes to an end, the children climb onto the school bus thankful for their day on the farm, the new friends they made and the hidden extra cargo they smuggle home with them! This picture book has it all, with humorous illustrations, addictive poetry and a wise message that both children and adults can learn from.
If you are looking for a heartwarming picture book that can teach readers of all ages to be thankful this Thanksgiving than I suggest you pick up ‘Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving on your next trip to the library!
