Today’s Thanksgiving book review is The Perfect Thanksgiving by Eileen Spinelli. Here’s what it’s about:
Enter two families who couldn’t be more opposite. Family one seems just perfect-with a plump golden turkey, gorgeous whipped cream swirls atop their pie, and lace napkins on the table. Family two, on the other hand, seems far from it! The turkey burns, the Jell-O wiggles and jiggles right to the floor, and Dad’s shirt serves as napkin. What could these two very different families possibly have in common?
Full of whimsy, good spirit, and certainly familial love, this laugh-aloud picture book is sure to add spice to any Thanksgiving feast.
This is a heartwarming book that shows how different we all are, especially in our family life. It contains an entertaining comparison of two families that carried over into the abstract illustrations. It’s also written in fun rhyme. I really enjoyed this one.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
