Jenn here with a new page turning Monday post. With thanksgiving right around the corner I am sharing a thanksgiving book today. Today’s book is:
Written by Jerry Pallotta
Illustrated by David Biedra
This is a fun story about a little boy who is thinking about thanksgiving and begins to wonder who will carve the turkey? Then you and the little one you a reading to can follow his imagination as he pictures all different kinds of animals carving the turkey…..But when the doorbell rings he sees who will carve the turkey!!
Now to carve out some fun 🙂
1. I will keep this book on hand to use when discussing animals. It has several different ones and you could easily use the story as a lead in for taking about each animal (how it lives, what it eats, it’s classification, etc.), then you could follow the animal info discussion with a craft about that animal. A fun teaching tool!!
2. Encourage your child to make up their own story about what animal they would like to see carve the turkey. You could even break out the art supplies and put together your own homemade book!
3. Talk about all things turkey and do all things turkey craft related! There are so many fun things to do, a Pinterest search never disappoints for crafts. If you would like to check out my thanksgiving craft roundup just click here.
These are a few of my ideas, but I know you can come up with more!!
I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving full of fun, friends, family, and some pumpkin pie 😉
Until next time,
