‘It’s Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3)’ Book Review

'It's Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3)' Book Review

Written by a prolific American writer of children’s poetry, It’s Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3) by Jack Prelutsky with illustrations by Marylin Hafner is recommended for readers between the ages of 4 and 6 years old. However, I first read the book of poetry to my toddler daughter last year when she was not yet 2 years old.

It’s Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3) tells the story of Thanksgiving through a series of poems about the holiday. From the first Thanksgiving to watching football after the big meal, this book for young readers mixes age-appropriate poems with fun illustrations that bring the story to life. As a level 3 book, It’s Thanksgiving! also offers complex plots for confident readers.

As a lover of rhymes, I really enjoyed the rhyming poetry in It’s Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3). Even my toddler daughter, who, at the time, was significantly younger than the recommend age group for the book, seemed to enjoy the poems when read aloud.

In addition to the poetry, It’s Thanksgiving! (I Can Read Book 3) also features fun illustrations that help bring the poems to life. My toddler daughter especially enjoyed pointing out the turkeys throughout the pages.
