Mayer, Mercer Just a Special Thanksgiving 20 pgs. Harper, 2015. $5.00 PICTURE BOOK
Critter’s has an eventful thanksgiving season, starting with a school play, a
parade, and thanksgiving dinner someplace he didn’t expect.
the artwork is adorable and Little Critter causes his usual mischief. But this
series just isn’t popular with students at my school, I am not sure if its because we mostly have paperback version or what. I liked the ending, but I
think I would have liked it better if Little Critter could have learned more
about being Thankful than just having fun. (Though I see there is a whole other
book about Being Thankful in this series, so they might make a good combo
read-aloud). Also this book might be cute as a gift since it comes with stickers.
