Buy! This book will become part a family tradition.
S/He enjoyed reading this book, especially with friends. They got into the rhythm of the story. While s/he didn't understand the impending danger that the turkeys were in, there was no hiding how the children had grown fatter as they re-boarded the bus.
This will be a household classic. Its silly imitation of Twas the Night Before Christmas makes it even more fun. Toddler will understand more as s/he grows, but in the meantime, our family is starting a tradition!
With such a fun imitation of T'was the Night Before Christmas, there's ample opportunity for the story to grow with toddler and be a classic Thanksgiving tradition.
