From the audiobook:

"Dad, Ruby, and I go to get the potatoes. We also buy squash, corn, and tomatoes. 'And we can’t forget the chocolate pie!' My sister and I together we cry.

"Nana and then Papa get here first, with my silly aunt that is a nurse! We jump into their arms, where they hug us and kiss us! They tell us we’ve grown and that they’ve missed us!

"By now, the house is filled with chatting, laughing people, and the noise is so loud, it shouldn’t be legal! But we all quiet down, like my growling tummy, the moment we sit down to eat - oh, how yummy!"

I can't say Thanksgiving for this

The author showed a lack depth for the subject of Thanksgiving has there was no background on it in the story to build a young child's mind. I noticed that tge story a vagueness about that made the party seem subjective to interpretation if you removed the word Thanksgiving rhe listener would have just thought if it has any other family gathering.

I don't think parents should buy this if what there looking for is a holiday story with depth has this novel lacks that quality in it.

cute story

The story was cute, although the children come across as selfish. They are barely finished with Thanksgiving and they are pushing their ways into Christmas gifts instead of enjoying the current holiday. Also, close up your room if you don't want the small children in it.

Fun holiday story!

I got this audiobook via a promo code at my request and this is my voluntary review.

We had some family staying with us from the US last year, and we celebrated Thanksgiving with them. Soo Porter does a great job telling this short rhyming story, explaining how this family went about preparing for their thanksgiving holiday meal. It was easy reading for younger kids. I do think the behaviour of the kids when asked to wash up could be a problematic lesson, as the story doesnt seem to be told from a spirit of helping and family, and its more grounded in good food and lots of presents, but it was a good distraction for the kids.
