This Little Turkey

Aly Fronis, illus. by Migy Blanco. Little Bee, $5.99 (16p) ISBN 978-1-4998-0302-0

Fronis adapted the nursery rhyme “This Little Piggy” for Easter earlier this year in This Little Bunny, and she gives it a Thanksgiving spin in this upbeat board book featuring a house full of turkeys preparing for the holiday. “This little turkey went to market,” Fronis begins, as the turkey father heads out the door with a wicker basket. Inside, “This little turkey swept the floor,” as grandpa sends up clouds of dust. Blanco’s bright, cartoony artwork helps establish a mood of down-on-the-farm cooperation as the turkeys work and play. Rest assured, the meal that lands on the table on the final spread is strictly vegetarian. Ages 3–6. Illustrator’s agency: Bright Literary. (Sept.)
