This book, by Michele Sobel Sprirn, has to be my favorite Thanksgiving book! It's an easy chapter book, which I like (short enough to read during my short groups, but long enough to make it feel like a big kid book). The vocabulary is pretty easy. And it's hilarious! My students laugh every year (especially at the part where he squirts milk out of his nose!)
