I was so pleased to be a part of Mother-Daughter Book Reviews’ book blast for Angela Muse’s Ten Thankful Turkeys. I was even more pleased to receive a complimentary review copy of this adorable book. 🙂
About the Book
Title: Ten Thankful Turkeys | Author: Angela Muse | Illustrator: Ewa Powdles | Publication Date: October 4, 2014 | Publisher: 4EYESBOOKS | Pages: 32 | Recommended Ages: 2 to 8 Summary: This colorful autumn tale follows ten turkeys as they get ready for an important celebration. This story teaches about gratitude. There are also fun turkey facts in the back of the book.
My review is quite simple: if you celebrate Canadian or American Thanksgiving with little ones, you will love this book and you will read it again and again each year! It is whimsical and sentimental as it counts through ten little turkeys preparing for their Thanksgiving meal. This sweet book culminates with the turkeys gathered around the table, bowing in gratefulness for all their blessings.
The word “bowed” is the most religious this book gets and so it should be suitable for grateful people of any or no religion. The book also avoids the historical details distinct to American Thanksgiving, thus making it suitable for those of any culture celebrating a Thanksgiving festival, as long as they are happy to have the book be about turkeys.
In short, this is an adorable book with fun pictures and good rhyming, rhythmical text. I think you will love it!
