‘Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving holiday books to read aloud. Dav Pilkey borrows from Clement Moore’s poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, to tell a hilarious story about a busload of children who are determined to save the turkeys on a nearby farm. They hide the turkeys under their coats and stagger back to the bus, with none the wiser. The illustrations are lively and upbeat: all in all it’s a great readaloud.
