Time for Turkey!

Next Thursday we'll be with family and friends celebrating Thanksgiving, so today was our last opportunity to celebrate turkeys at Storytime. We read three stories about this famous bird. A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman told the story of a town who tried to trick a turkey into being Thanksgiving dinner (here's a video of the story!). This is the Turkey by Abby Levine was a rhyming and sequential story about a family preparing their holiday meal. Eve Bunting's A Turkey for Thanksgiving was the clear favorite today, about a Moose family preparing Thanksgiving dinner for their animal friends and Mr. Moose's quest to find a turkey to be their special guest. 

For our craft - yes, a turkey! Looped strips of colorful wallpaper and construction paper made the feathers for our paper-plate bird. A kraft paper body with eyes, beak, legs, and a snood finished him off. 
Then, to the delight of other patrons, we had an impromptu turkey parade around the library! Such a fun way to end our time together!
