Illustrated Friday: Turk and Runt
I'm in the grips of an epic food coma right now, but I wanted to share my favorite Thanksgiving-related illustrated book in honor of yesterday's festivities. Turk and Runt is the story of one turkey's efforts to save his family from becoming someone's Thanksgiving meal, and the lengths he has to go to to explain the gravity of the situation to his fellow turkeys. The illustrations are wry and witty with lots of details, and I get excited every year for the opportunity to share this book with my class. I know this year's group certainly enjoyed it!
