                    A Turkey for Thanksgiving 
by Eve Bunting


All the animal friends are invited by Mr. and Mrs. Moose for Thanksgiving dinner, but the only one missing is Turkey.  They set out to find their friend, Turkey.  Of course, Turkey thinks he will be ON THE TABLE, but he learns he has true friends and they all want him at their table.  I wonder what they have for Thanksgiving dinner.  Great read aloud at Thanksgiving time.

You can purchase this book from Amazon.com HERE  then click HERE  to use the writing response below with your students. Students will write or draw about the characters in the story, the setting, the problem and solution.  Great lesson on story elements.
