What My Children are Reading- Nov 21

It was not all about turkeys and Thanksgiving this week.
We had been missing our copy of Is your Mama a Llama, but it showed up this week and it has been Kimberly's #1 pick of the week.
This beautifully illustrated book has wonderful rhyming riddles which challenge your kids to discover whose mamma is whose.
Kimberly is well on her way to memorizing this whole book.
Our favorite turkey book of the week was Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving.
My 4 youngest kids all loved this book. Be warned, it does have a farmer that tells children on a field trip to his farm that in the morning he is going to kill the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinner.
The schoolchildren rescue the turkeys and take them home to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner as guests in their homes.
It is written in the rhyme and cadence of Twas the Night Before Christmas, and very enjoyable, but it may make the kids eat NO turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.

We also enjoyed these books in the past week.
You can check them out at Amazon by clicking in the book cover.

I keep hearing about the llama books - thanks for reminding me. I'm off to see if our library website has it! Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving sounds really cute too. Hope you have a great week!

We read that Llama book, but for whatever reason Anna didn't like it. I tried not to choose any books that would mention saving turkeys, because right now Anna is really excited about Thanksgiving dinner, and I am excited about her being excited about food.
