The text for this book consists entirely of the lyrics from the classic Thanksgiving song Over The River and Through The Woods.
The illustrations provide a fun adventure story about a family of turnkeys who manage to get to Grandma’s house in time for Thanksgiving dinner, after evading a dog and a donkey on an out-of-control sled.
It’s a lot of fun to sing the song while pointing out all of the crazy things happening in the picture-story. The giggles tend to ensue when the donkey inadvertently saves the turkey family by crashing into the dog – and when the dog get’s a verbal beat-down from grandma turkey. In the end the dog is remorseful and, therefore, invited to the turkey family dinner.
I can honestly say this is one of the best Thanksgiving-themed children’s books I’ve seen.
