Nancy White Carlstrom's short, snappy verses and R. W. Alley's cheerful illustrations come together in a lively Thanksgiving book that is sure to be a welcome part of your own family's festivities.
A house full of relatives can mean only one thing -- it must be Thanksgiving! Starting with a school pageant the day before Thanksgiving and ending with after-dinner snoozing, this book offers a peek at one family's holiday celebration. Whether for rhyming or singing or simply saying grace, these warm, cozy poems show that there are lots of ways to give thanks -- and so many things to be thankful for!
