Description:This is the food, gathered and blessed,
the corn and sweet berries, and wild turkey dressed,
shared on the very first Thanksgiving Day.
Join author Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrator Susan Gaber on a journey back to the very first Thanksgiving Day, when two societies came together to feast and honor the earth's bounty in peace.
My review: This book offers a lovely introduction to
the Thanksgiving holiday that even the youngest viewers can grasp.
Gaber's rich paintings convey a surprising amount of emotion . Although
simplistic, the scope of the holiday is captured in just a few pages.
