Thanksgiving Mice! by Bethany Roberts -- ADVISABLE

Roberts, Bethany Thanksgiving Mice! Illustrated by Doug Cushman. Green Light Readers, 2001. $3.99. Content: G.

Four adorable mice dress up like Pilgrims and put on a play detailing the Mayflower's arrival on shore and the first Thanksgiving. The rhyming and rhythm are a bit clunky, and the actual history of Thanksgiving is very glossed-over, but it would make a fun supplement to other holiday activities. The illustrations are cute, and the simple text is good for newer readers.
