The Night Before Thanksgiving

Everyone’s favorite fun-filled, family-filled, food-filled holiday is almost here! Follow along as the feast is prepared, cousins are greeted, and everyone gathers around the table, all with an extra helping of holiday fun.

Natasha Wing takes a flight of fancy in The Night Before Thanksgiving, illus. by Tammie Lyon. Based on Moore's poem, the tale begins: " 'Twas the night before Thanksgiving,/ and all through the nation/ families got ready/ for the big celebration."

My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner - pie!
