" For once I'd like to see a red head in a positive rile instead of being the nerd, bully or brat. That just sends such a negative message to children with red hair. " said.

" Read during first grade class visit on 11/16/12: http://storytimesecrets.blogspot.com/... " said.

" Easy reader about the class thanksgiving play for which Mark has disappointingly been appointed the role of turkey. In the end he saves the day...and the play. " said.

" One of my kids chose this one and I'm glad they did. It's a level 2 reader, so it is above their reading level right now, but they really enjoyed reading the story with me. Mark hopes he gets a good part and is told that the turkey is a good part, until he begins to get teased. I love what Mark does to prove his part is the best. " said.

" This was an enjoyable book that my son picked out at the library. It's an I-Can-Read book. It has a total of 47 pages, which may be intimidating to a brand new reader. However, it is divided in to 3 sections, so if your brand new reader wants to take a break he can. The story was very enjoyable, and kept my son's attention. " said.

" Mark was chosen to be the Thanksgiving turkey in the school play. He's happy with the part until his older brother makes fun of him and tells him he's dead in the end when the Pilgrims and Indians eat him for Thanksgiving dinner. Mark unsuccessfully tries to get out of the play. He ends up being a hit as he runs around trying to hide so as not to be eaten, and he saves the play when the classmate who is a Pilgrim can't say his lines. It's a quick read and a good beginning holiday book. " said.

" What I think about Mark is that he is a nice boy.Mark got chosen on a school play and when he went home it was dinner.Mark's dad ask him "How was school?" Mark told his family that he was going to be the class turkey for the play. Mark's brother Tim made fun of him and Mark said "This is the worst part I ever got". When the class play started, Mark was looking out of the curtains and he saw his family. Mark saw that his brother was picking his nose. At the end, mark was not nervous anymore. " said.

"In I Am the Turkey, Mark plays the role of the turkey in the second-grade Thanksgiving play. He initially thinks its an important part but his older brother teases him about the role so Mark begins to worry about being on stage. This early reader (2nd level) has very short sentences with repetitive words and simple, colored illustrations on every page, even those with text. The illustrations are drawn in thick pen and then primary colors fill in the space, giving a comical view of Mark's facial expressions on nearly every page. This book will be especially amusing for young boys with nose-picking and throwing up incident. The book does not teach children any historical facts about Thanksgiving; it is more about Mark overcoming his worry about looking foolish and his interactions with his older brother. Not recommended for public libraries unless lacking in beginning readers that appeal to boys. " said.
