“A Turkey for Thanksgiving” by Eve Bunting is a Thanksgiving classic. Bunting’s stories are loved for a reason. In “A Turkey for Thanksgiving” the Mr. Moose goes out looking for Turkey to bring him to Thanksgiving dinner because he promised Mrs. Moose that he will do so. The illustrations and the expressions made by Turkey are perfectly done. The story is ideal for teaching inferencing, predicting, summarazing, and sequencing to students K-3. Kids love this story because it is highly engaging and full of surprises.
