Interpretation Of A Nostalgic Thanksgiving Song
The illustrations show two children in a sleigh and their parents preparing to follow them in another. As they travel through the snow to Grandmother's house for Thanksgiving they cross
"Over the river and through the wood, to Grandmother's house away!"but the horse knows the way.
"We would not stop for doll or top, for 'tis Thanksgiving Day."The heavy pages should easily withstand the little hands that might like to look at these colorful illustrations.
What My Concerns Were: If you're interested in teaching this traditional song/poem, then this is a fun way to share that. Otherwise, I'm a little concerned about this story holding a child's interest.
What I Liked Most: The illustrations are bright and show several curious animals watching the sleigh as it travels through the woods.
