The story moves along easily and the illustrations are chock full of details and activities that engage young (and older) readers. It even has the recipe for Albert's famous pumpkin pizza dessert! This is a fun story for kids and parents alike…although parents are more likely to relate to the flurry of activity and chuckle at the PTA president's leadership style.

To read our full review (complete with the kids' opinions!) go to The Reading Tub.

Albert's Thanksgiving is a wonderful way to bring in a different writing style into the classroom. This book is a collection of letters between two characters as they get ready for the big celebration. Children get to see how letters begin with an introduction, body and an ending. Also, this book is a wonderful tool for sequencing. Kids will have a blast naming the order of the tasks Albert needs to complete before the guests arrive!

Albert's Thanksgiving is a good way to introduce different writing styles. This book shows the different steps to writing a letter. This book includes sequencing and a visible timeline due to two characters writing letters back and fourth. Albert, the PTA president, has so much to do to prepare for his big party yet he has so little time!

Thanksgiving is a holiday to collect crops. There are so many things to prepare for the Thanksgiving party, but the most important thing is forgetted by others. Read this story and have the students create a job that they can help out in the classroom. Also, ask the students what are their jobs during Thanksgiving.
This falls flat. The PTA President gives Albert a bunch of assignments which keeps him from his original job, harvesting the vegetables. In the end they all pitch in and help him. Not compelling.
This book came out for the holidays, but the boys never let me pack it back up. Tommy especially pulls it out all year round.
My kids loved this and it'd be great with a letter writing unit, but I was eh about it.
3.5 stars. Love the overworked Albert.
