Wednesdays with The Subversive Children's Book Club: Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

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.   

This 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.
