This is one of the best children's Thanksgiving books I have read. I like it because it has funny jokes, facts, history and crafts! I learned a thing or too!

What was really cool and unique is that it discussed different Thanksgiving Celebration around the world. Such as Canada has a Thanksgiving in October. Hindi and Japanese have Thanksgiving festivals!..Never would have thought about people other than Canadians and US having a formal Thanksgiving Celebration..>Bring on the Turkey!

Thanks!

I like that this book explains that we don't know for sure about certain aspects of Thanksgiving, but that these are our best guess. I also like at the end it talks about how different cultures celebrate their own thankfulness.

I liked this book. It is very informative but not boring thanks to the fun facts. The riddles throughout the book were funny. Some people might not really enjoy the ridles, but I liked it. I thinks this book is a good informative book about Thanksgiving because of the little humors.
