Today’s Thanksgiving book review is Albert’s Thanksgiving by Leslie Tyron. Here’s what it’s about:
It’s time for the great Thanksgiving feast in Pleasant Valley, and there’s so much to be done There are hats and Indian headbands to be made, as well as decorations of dried cornstalks and bright-colored leaves. But who will make the new harvest table and the cross-legged turkeys? And what about the vegetables? These must be harvested if there’s going to be a feast, but everyone has forgotten about them Luckily, Albert the duck hasn’t forgotten. He’ll make sure this is the best Thanksgiving feast since 1621.
The first thing that stood out about this book is the wonderful illustrations. I especially loved the pigs. It was a story about how busy we are, preparing for Thanksgiving, and Albert is the busiest of all. He needs to pick the vegetables for the feast, but he’s asked to do many other jobs that distract from what he really needs to do. But, in the end, everyone comes together to finish the preparation.
My Rating: 3 out of 5
