KIRKUS REVIEW

A large extended family comes together at Grandma’s house for an old-fashioned Thanksgiving. Everyone helps with the cooking, the eating, and the cleanup. There is just as much noise as there is dialogue and it’s all incorporated into the text of this predictable little story. The swirling text of differing size might be a little confusing to read aloud, but small audiences will enjoy coming up with the stories behind the family’s actions and expressions. Goode’s signature watercolor-and-ink illustrations are full of drama, mystery, and delight as the family comes together for dinner, again for dessert, and then parts until next year. Sure to please families of any size at harvest season. (Picture book. 3-6)
