One of my favorite books to read this time of year is Turkey Trouble by Wendy Silvano. In the story, the troubled turkey finds different way to disguise himself so as not to get eaten on Thanksgiving. At the end of the story he decides to dress a a pizza delivery guy and brings pizza to the family he is trying to avoid! The kids looove the story and the illustrations. You have to get this one! Great book to use for problem and solution!
We did a quick Readers' Response to the story. We brainstormed many different things that could be eaten on Thanksgiving instead of turkey and created a chart. We picked out our favs and wrote a quick little poem. Then created a fun little turkey to hold our writing.

We don't have Thanksgiving here in Australia but I think I will still read this book so I can do these great activities. I'm hopping over to Book Depository to buy a copy now.
