    " This is a book with a twist because the author totally surprised us with the ending. We liked this book because it was funny and we thought all along that they were going to eat the turkey. The turkey character was also very funny. This was a fun book to read! "

    " Thanksgiving books are so hard to find. I would really love to have a whole collection of them that we could read all through the month of November, but there are just not a ton of great ones out there. One that I do have, that is an absolute favorite is called "A Turkey for Thanksgiving", by Eve Bunting. The story is sweet without being sappy. There are some humorous twists and best of all, the illustrations are amazing! Mr. and Mrs. Moose want a turkey for Thanksgiving, so Mr. Moose sets out to find one. It doesn't take long before all his forest neighbors are helping him. The story ends with what happens when the animals find a turkey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 1/18/2014

    " Same storyline as Sometimes its Turkey, Sometimes it's Feathers book. Nice for young children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. | 1/11/2014

    " One of my favorite Thanksgiving stories though younger children need it explained in the end. It can be perfect for older students as they will get the ending better. I like doing this book with multiple voices as a read aloud as it lends itself well to teaching voice and character in the text. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/5/2014

    " An old family favorite, I "read" this today to my students in the library, (with the full-cast cassette that came with the copy we have at home - perfect, since I'm recovering from a cold!) We all LOVE this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madison | 12/13/2013

    " This would be a good book for students to predict. Mostar students think the turkey is going to die and they think Mr. Moose wants to eat him. It would be a book to show students that sometimes your predictions are wrong and that's ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauri | 12/5/2013

    " Clever Thanksgiving story with a twist at the end :) "

    " Kids love this book! When Mr. Moose goes out looking for a turkey for Thanksgiving, you automatically think that he is going to eat it. Little do you know that he wants to have Turkey as a Thanksgiving guest. I just love the expressions on Turkey's face. A must read for Thanksgiving! "

    " Don't get me wrong. I love Eve Bunting but I really don't like thinking of the turkey being killed or saved. Too much of a city girl. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 10/12/2011

    " This is a fun and slightly unusual story about Thanksgiving, where the turkey is quite understandably nervous to be invited to the party. The story has wonderful illustrations and our girls loved listening to this story narrated on audio cassette. We've borrowed this book a couple of times. "
