KIRKUS REVIEW

These 20 short selections include a few words of thanks, a few references to the pilgrims and Indians, and 13 verses dealing somehow with food. It's a weak collection, with an amusing ""Thanksgiving Thought"" by Bobbi Katz and a couple of four-line entertainments on the turkey's viewpoint on the light side, and a respectable evocation of the ""First Thanksgiving"" by Myra Cohn Livingston on the serious end. But too much of the rest consists of either menu jingles (the worst are by Rowena Bastin Bennett and Lee Blair) or pious singsong (by Ivy O. Eastwick and Margaret Hillert).
