    I liked the idea of teaching about Thanksgiving through letters of the alphabet. And I liked that readers are told from the beginning that, "Some myths we'll set straight." Unfortunately the illustrations (cartoony children dressed in stereotypical Thanksgiving outfits putting on a play) didn't support this text.

    We bought "T is for Turkey" by Tanya Lee Stone at the end of the year last year. I kept it away to read before Thanksgiving this year. This book is in alphabet book form as it explains the true thanksgiving story. A school puts on a play to tell the story. The books helps kids celebrate everything from Harvest to Pilgrims to Turkey. This book is so creative with the words on each page. Also the illustrations by Gerald Kelley are so colorful and really tell the story of the play.

We loved the book and my kids learned a lot of Thanksgiving vocabulary words that they didn't know yet. This book is perfect to teach the alphabet around Thanksgiving to younger kids. But also help with vocabulary words for the older kids. My kids really were entertained through this book. This will for sure stay on our shelf.

    I was so excited when this book started out claiming it was going to set things straight. It has some good moments in regards to this, but it shows white kids dressed in stereotypical native dress throughout which kind of shows that they tried but still missed the mark.

    A bit frustrated with the inclusion of Mary Hale and Abraham Lincoln Lincoln a book that focuses primarily on the Pilgrims Thanksgiving -- confusing for kids to keep the people straight when two from a different time period were thrown in the middle of a discussion on the 1600s.

    Alphabet format tells history of Thanksgiving in rhyming text that is surprisingly accurate and up to date.

    This is one of my favorite books about Thanksgiving. It's a rhyming story with fun illustrations that talk about things related to Thanksgiving from A to Z. At the end of the book, the author has a page with details of Thanksgiving. It starts out: "A is for the American story our school play will tell. Some myths we'll set straight, other facts you know well." It explained some things: "G is for 'Good Morrow,' it's what Pilgrims said. 'Hello' and 'How are you?' is what we say instead."

"I is for Indians but that name's not quite right, We're the Wampanoag tribe, or 'People of the Light.'" "P is for Pilgrims but those clothes are not right! There were no silver buckles and the colors were bright."

    This is a great book I can read with my whole family. While my oldest is much to old to enjoy books about the alphabet, she loves the way it's written as a poem and the facts that go along. She and I were both impressed to see that they actually found a word for the letter "x" that started with the letter! Good job on that one! I have a feeling this will make a great holiday read every year. It's written in the format of a play performed to explain about the Thanksgiving tradition.

    I thought it was a creative way for kids to learn about thanksgiving. I liked how it was formatted through the ABC's. I enjoyed the pictures and I know kids would love it too. I like how it gave a brief sense of what thanksgiving really is and its not all about the turkey (the food). I think the ABC's format makes it fun to read and understand because its less wordy and doesn't look like a textbook form. A very fun picture book.

    I just read this online at http://www.wegivebooks.org My boys are a little old to appreciate the alphabet, but the vocabulary is excellent and I even learned some new things I hadn't before. It helps set straight (in a gentle, easy to read way) a lot of the misconceptions we have about Thanksgiving.

    I am always looking for great childrens books that go along with different seasons, holidays, and themes. This is just a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving, while teaching about it, and going over the basics of the alphabet. This would be fun for kids to make their own abc book of their favorite thanksgiving traditions.

    This is a ABC book that revolves around a children's school play. Each page is a letter from the alphabet and it goes from A-Z. The book talk about the voyage the pilgrims made on the mayflower. Then goes into life in America to meeting the Indians to how thanksgiving came about. The book has some good information and good illustrations. Grades k-3

    Seasonal books for my preschool classroom often do not teach a lesson but T is for Turkey: A True Thanksgiving Story is an alphabet book that covers most all the points about the first Thanksgiving with darling illustrations and rhyme. The children love this book and often ask for it long after the holiday is over.

    With the subtitle "A True Thanksgiving Story" it is clear that this author hopes to dispel some myths about the holiday. Nicely done...setting is a school play and words used to represent the alphabet are not limited to nouns, adding some depth to the story.

    T is for Turkey is a wonderful ABC book! It is wonderful for kindergartners and has amazing illustrations! They are by far my favorite and the words all involve thanksgiving lingo! Great for teaching young children the meaning of thanksgiving while learning there ABC's

    GREAT ABC book on all things Thanksgiving! Great to read to Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten classes! They can learn a lot about the holiday, and the incorporation of the alphabet is great for young students!

    An excellent introduction to the idea of Thanksgiving, clearing up several horrible misconceptions that will, unfortunately, be pounded into the heads of children over the years. My nephew and niece both enjoy reading it as well.

    A great book to introduce letters and holidays to young students. This book is full of really eye catching illustrations and colors that help to intrique young minds. Perfect for this time of year and a lot of fun to share with younger students to help them learn the letters of the alphabet.

    This book is a really fun way to teach about thanksgiving to young children! The rhymes are fun and the illustrations are attention grabbing for the younger ones who can't read yet. This would be fun as a teacher to use in my classroom.

    As i was reading this book i thought that it would be a great one to read to a kindergarten or 1st grade class during Thanksgiving. I recently had to give a lesson to kindergarteners on Thanksgiving and this would have been perfect. Its very cute and informational.

    This was a cute alphabet Thanksgiving book. For every letter of the alphabet the author writes a sentence pertaining to Thanksgiving the original one and the modern one. Mixing the two for young readers.

    Perfect merging of letter knowledge and recognition with holiday fun; also provides an alternative perspective of what we teach in "standard" social studies curriculum.
