"I have a string of Thanksgiving books that I read to my daughter and my second graders. These will be quick reviews based on the reactions of my daughter and students. I put the date the same for each book, but I really read them in the week leading up to Thanksgiving, and on Thanksgiving Day. Under the how many times I've read it category, that will be how many Thanksgivings I've used this book.

I love the style of David Catrow's art, but sometimes he's a little crude. This is funny to the kids so I always have it in my pile of books for free time reading.
" said.

" Nicely done verison of the 1844 poem. Two page spread illustrations alternate between the family on their journey to the grandparents house and the grandparents making the Thanksgiving dinner. " said.

" I picked this up thinking it was a Christmas story but it turns out to be a Thanksgiving song. Very cute verses and old school illustrations add charm. " said.

" Notes:words to this song/story do not go with this book and it's pictures " said.

" Illustrations by David Catrow: I still enjoy the original poem, but these pictures just weren't my thing. " said.

" A humorous idea - pair a gentle, classic holiday poem with frantic, action-packed illustrations - that coaxed no laughter from the Hunter clan. I found it unnecessary. What did Child do to deserve such treatment, anyway? " said.

" The text is the classic poem. The illustrations are just not my jam. A baby on her way to grandma's gets all mixed up in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Cute idea, but drawn by an editorial cartoonist. Just too garish for me. " said.

" Love this song/poem so picked this up at library thinking it would be a modern day take on the tale. Um, no thank you. As others have stated more eloquently than me, the illustrations are unpleasant to look at and not at all in keeping with the sweet, almost cozy feel one would expect. " said.
