T Is for Turkey: A True Thanksgiving Story

Tanya Lee Stone, Author, Gerald Kelley, Illustrator , illus. by Gerald Kelley. Penguin/Price Stern Sloan $4.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8431-2570-2

Putting readers in the audience of a school play, cartoon children enact a rhyming ABC Thanksgiving story, dressed in the clothing of the colonists and Native Americans and set against a backdrop of scenery and stage props. Along the way, the kids aim to “set straight” certain myths: “I is for Indians/ But that name's not quite right./ We're the Wampanoag tribe,/ or 'People of the Light.' ” But on the whole, this is a breezy book about celebrating: “Y is for yummy./ We share this great food/ And rejoice all together,/ What a wonderful mood!” Ages 4–8. (Aug.)
