I do help make Thanksgiving dinner. I help make the turkey and mashed potatoes. I usually make the mashed potatoes from scratch which is always fun. When I go down Eric’s we help his mom make pies and we make pumpkin cookies. I also put the brown and serve rolls in the oven. Those are really easy.

I read this as a child.
This is a basic book about the “history” of Thanksgiving. I put history in quotes because it’s a watered down, very simplistic, probably mostly false children’s version of Thanksgiving history. The illustrations are extremely bright and colorful, but also very dated. It’s funny, as I read this I found myself thinking, “This has to have been written in the late ’70s.” The publication date is actually 1983, but close enough!

I know that the pilgrims didn’t know what to plant. What animals they could kill and eat. What fish was good for them. Then an Indian came up to them and offered them help and as thanks to the Indian and his tribe the pilgrims had a dinner for them.

Honestly I don’t know if a turkey would make a great pet. I guess it would as long as it didn’t peck at you or chase you. If it was a tame turkey I suppose.
