I took this book to my daughter's 1st grade class for 'Mystery Reader' day right before Thanksgiving and the kids LOVED it! The teacher and I enjoyed it too - neither of us were really aware of how Thanksgiving became a national holiday. The illustration makes the book wonderful to read aloud to a group and the writing is excellent for 1st and 2nd grade readers. I would recommend this book for parents and teachers of young children as an excellent Thanksgiving story - something over and above the history of the pilgrims which gives an added facet to the celebration of the holiday.

Imagine life without Thanksgiving in the USA: that is how Anderson opens up her story and introduces the historical figure, Sarah Hale. Sarah is a ¿superhero¿ who uses her secret weapon, a pen, to argue for Thanksgiving and its implementation as a national holiday. The cartoonish illustrations are well-done, and they use warm hues that are reminiscent of the warmth associated with Thanksgiving. Naturally, reading this story around Thanksgiving would be an excellent thematic unit.

This book is WONDERFUL! I am so glad we checked it out, because not only do the kids enjoy it, I learned alot from it. I had never heard of Sarah Hale that I recall. Every little girl should read this book. It perseverance of Sarah Hale in a time when women had very little voice, is VERY inspirational.

I bought this last year for Thanksgiving. My son (5) really enjoys it. It teaches him that anyone can be a hero if they stick up for what they believe in.

This book combines history and tradition, is politically correct, and somehow still manages to be interesting and really funny. The illustrations are excellent- flamboyant yet realistic, with characters ranging from presidential caricatures to the improbable Thanksgiving hero 'Turkey Dude'. The story is related in a chatty tone that appeals to kids, and yet the subject is a little-known piece of history even for most adults, who will enjoy discovering this with their children.

When I was in fourth grade we did a play on this book! It was just my classroom that did the play but all the other fourth grade classes came and saw it! I am really into theatre so I got Sarah, the main part. I just realized that this was the book that our play was based on! I remember that it was a great book!
