It’s time for turkey and time for fun, and there are a two great gobbler books to share. For your turkey tricks and games while learning about Thanksgiving Day! In our first book the school kids are putting on a play. There are ten little turkeys all dressed up, a clever fox playing seek and find, a farmer and a striped cat helping the turkeys hide. These little turkeys scurry and flutter and run from the clever fox all in fun. With each new skit another little turkey tires to hide in a new hiding spot. But will all these little turkey’s fit? Find out how these ten turkeys steal the show. All ten turkeys find a hiding place, count them all ten. Where did they go? Find out in Hide and Seek Turkeys by Judith Ross Enderle and Stephanie Jacob Gordon, illustrated by Teresa Murfin.

Our next book is really something, too! Another seek and find turkey hunt is about to ensue. The people of Squawk Valley are depressed indeed for they have no turkey for Thanksgiving Day, they only have shredded wheat?!?! Yes all of their turkeys have run away and they have a gobbler dilemma for Thanksgiving Day! See how these townsfolk try to catch this clever bird – they use trickery and creativity to hatch their plan – but will A Plump and Perky Turkey really end up in the Thanksgiving Day pan? Get your little ‘turkeys’ squawking in this goofy and funny Thanksgiving Day tale by Teresa Bateman and illustrated by Jeff Shelly.

Turkey, turkey and gobble, gobble. Have a wonderful and festive Thanksgiving Day!
