Thanks for Thanksgiving
By Julie Markes
"Thanks for Thanksgiving,
for turkey and pie."
"Thank you for fall
And gold leaves floating by."
is a time to give thanks and share with others what makes you feel
happy, secure and loved. The tradition of thanks is for all ages,
but in her picture book Julie Markes shares the tradition with children,
ages three through seven. She writes about cuddling, dancing, pets,
piggy-back rides and more. Markes' Thanksgiving rhymes are set into
the colorful illustrations of Doris Barrette. The illustrated scenes
of family bliss and childhood joys are comprehensive, vibrant and
cheerful. At the back of the book Markes also gives the youngsters
a page to write down what they are thankful for. It's a fun, festive
book, just waiting to be part of your Thanksgiving tradition.
