Turkeys Never Gobble
Joan Holub / Author, Jennifer Beck Harris / Illustrator Harper
Rollicking quatrains and charming animal characters will attract young readers to the quirky holiday etiquette board book Turkeys Never Gobble! by Joan Holub, illus. by Jennifer Beck Harris. A sample: ""Rhinos never run/ around the table and act rude./ Porcupines do not poke fun/ if they don't like the food."" The pictures tell the real story: the rhino child tries to bolt from his chair, while the porcupine pantomimes his disdain for the broccoli before him.
