Description

This joyful feast of words and pictures is now available in a bright levelled reader format — with a brand-new cover treatment!

With perfect words to conjure up the rich sights, sounds, smells, and feelings of the holiday, Thanks for Thanksgiving will surely carve its place in our time-honoured tradition. Nature hikes, apple-picking, migrating geese, and even a road-hockey game are surrounded by the rich colours of autumn.

Rhythmic text introduces young readers to the words and images that celebrate the holiday, and a fact page at the back of the book includes information on the history and origins of the Canadian celebration of Thanksgiving.
