Why not try something different for Thanksgiving dinner? These pilgrims do just that when the turkey keeps averting their catch.

A perfect Thanksgiving book with a fun rhyming refrain and an unexpected twist.
My kind of pilgrims! At the end, they eat pumpkin pie instead of turkey. The story focuses on two brothers as they search for a turkey for dinner. Young readers will enjoy the silly chase but the story was a little bit to wordy.
a longer worded book. cute. would be good as a read-aloud unless you're afraid of singing. ;)
This short story I thought was good book but I believe its more of a book to read at home. This a book to read around the holidays to children. Teachers could read this book in the classroom around Thanksgiving and have a fun activity to go with reading the book, like have a crafting table for children to make their own turkey and decorate how ever they like.
I love the illustrations in this book for preschoolers. The turkey is hilarious as he looks for ways to hide from the pilgrim brothers. Does a Thanksgiving meal always mean turkey? The littlest pilgrim brother isn't so sure. A fun read for "turkey" lovers and vegetarians alike!
Though not intended to be a vegetarian book, this one could work as a vegetarian Thanksgiving tale. One of the characters doesn't really want turkey for thanksgiving, he would rather have pumpkin pie! The story had a nice repetative rhyme to it.
Like how they saved the turkey and had pumpkin pie instead!

I grew up in Gary, Indiana with one sister and two brothers. I liked to ride my bike, and play games with my older brother and the other kids who lived on our street. I also liked going to the beach on Lake Michigan in the summer, and ice skating in the winter. I liked reading all year long.

After high school, I went to nursing school and became a registered nurse. My first nursing job was as a Pe
