Genre: Realistic Fiction (& slightly informational)

Style: This book uses onamonapia. For example, in the book when the hunters go to find food, the book uses, "bang" to describe the sound.

Review: A young boy is going through the history of how Thanksgiving came to be. This book is a good example of realistic fiction because young children might think through the events that led to Thanksgiving. The book is also slightly informational because it talks about the journey the pilgrims took from England to America. However, this book is not historical fiction because the story line is not accurate information (just the information about Thanksgiving is accurate).

Media: Pen & Water Colors ( )

Gibbons once again does it again as she creates a story line that creatively explains to children the meaning and purpose behind the holiday of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is, shows the communication and friendships between the pilgrims and Indians. This is a wonderful resource for teachers to get projects out of and allow students to explore their own creativity to express in projects that they might discover in the book. ( )
