Today's edition of the Subversive Children's Book Club is a good choice for families who may tie Thanksgiving traditions to teaching their children to care for animals as winter nears - Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving by Dav Pilkey.
funny little picture book tells the story of a class of schoolchildren
who visit a turkey farm, make friends with the turkeys and then discover
the turkey farmer's terrible secret. They manage to sneak the turkeys
away for safe Thanksgivings in their homes where they can be dinner
guests and not dinner served. It is funny and sweet and perfect for
vegetarian children. I highly recommend it.
