I love the song-like quality of the story, like the following verse that starts the book:
Mama, fetch the cooking pot.
Fetch our turkey-cooking pot.
Big and old and black and squat.
Mama, fetch the pot.
Everyone in the family has a job. Papa tends to the fire; Sister makes the bread; Brother bastes the turkey. Even Grandma and Grandpa pitch in to make the cranberries and pies. Aunt and Uncle arrive and also lend a helping hand. Finally, dinner is ready.
Family, find your dining place.
Choose a chair and fill your space.
Bow your heads and ask for grace.
Family, find your place.
With heartwarming illustrations by Jill McElmurry, this book will charm children and adults alike. Food and family -- what could be better for Thanksgiving?!
