I think I said this at Halloween.... but if I did, just know that I did mean it but I also mean this too: Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year!
The narrator compares her own somewhat disenchanting Thanksgiving in which her family: burps, chews on the gizzards, sings at the table, wear only blue jeans & has to deal with the blackened & burnt turkey; to that of Abigail Asher's family who are "perfect".
As a group, the students & I started this books by comparing the turkeys illustrated on the front cover: similarities & differences. We continued this idea comparison throughout our reading & as we got to the last page, the conclusion was clear: families are different, but the love is the same.
