We love the “I can Read!” series in our home… It’s Thanksgiving!  is a fun book perfect for preschool students to listen and enjoy.  Amazon says:    It’s time for turkey! The parade is about to start. The pumpkin pie is in the oven. The whole family is gathered around the table. And everybody wants to pull the wishbone!

Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving . . . and you’re the main  course. But Turkey has an idea–what if he doesn’t look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead?  After many hilarious attempts, Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever!  We have a fun activity to go along with this book on TpT!

Another similar story -that is great for comparing/contrasting is Run, Turkey, Run!  With Thanksgiving only one day away, can Turkey find a place to hide from the farmer who’s looking for a plump bird for his family feast?

My children love all of the Olivia books. She is on goofy pig with quite the imagination!
