“Twas the night before Thanksgiving” by Dav Pilkey definitely makes
the cut with the other funny and engaging holiday reads, such as,
“Twas the Night Before the Night Before Christmas” by Natasha Wing.
“Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving” tells a story of a group of school kids
who go on a field trip to a farm where they make friends with
turkeys and have a grand time until Farmer Nugget tells them “a grim tale of dread”…
The story turns out for the best and the kids will love the ending.
The illustrations tell as much of the story as the story itself, while the rhymes
are perfect for the word study in grades K-2.
Great story that you’ll read over and over :).
