'Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving (Bookshelf) - Dav Pilkey

Eight grade school children go on a field trip to a turkey farm the day before Thanksgiving where they meet eight turkeys with names.  When the children discover that their new turkey friends are intended to be Thanksgiving dinner the next day, they save them by hiding the turkeys under their shirts and sneaking them back to school on the bus.  The next day, instead of eating turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, they each have a turkey as a guest for Thanksgiving dinner.  The story is told in the same style as 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

 

This would be a good book to read to the class the day before Thanksgiving break.  It can be used to teach a lesson about rhyming words.  The students can also use illustrations and context clues to help them decipher unknown text (boarded, terrain, clatter).

 

The lexile level for this book is NP

Scholastic level is at P

Children's Review: 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving
'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving (Bookshelf) by Pilkey, Dav (2004) Paperback - Dav Pilkey

A read this book in her library class so I checked it out and figured K would enjoy this story as much as she did. K thought it was really funny how the kids smuggled the turkeys out and the farmer didn't notice. Though he did say that he loves turkey so he isn't sure if he would bring them home as friends. 

If you like story 'Twas the Night before Christmas than you will like this take on 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving and what happens when a group of children go on a field trip to a turkey farm. 

There is plenty of rhyming and the pictures go great with the story being told, so kids I believe will really enjoy this story and will laugh by the end of it.

'Twas the Night after Christmas - Sabrina Jeffries
Death Comes to London - Catherine Lloyd

Blue, City, Face, Night, Power, To

 

'Twas the Night After Christmas / Sabrina Jeffries ~ 3/12/15

 

Death Comes to London / Catherine Lloyd ~ 3/3/15

This is the second in a series. I thought the romantic leads were done in the first book, but nope. They were once again involved in a mystery and their relationship was rocky and fun. Makes me eager for the next book to see what happens with them and the other characters.

Twas the Night Before Christmas
Twas the Night Before Christmas: Edited by Santa Claus for the Benefit of Children of the 21st Century - Clement C. Moore,Elena Almazova,Vitaly Shvarov

I found this book for free on Amazon and thought it was really interesting that this book had the part of smoking edited, by Santa Claus himself, out of the story. That was one of the things that always got me thinking when I was younger about the original - my parents smoked for awhile, my sister does now, but I never have and always thought it was disgusting that he did.

 

This is one of my favorite Christmas stories - beautifully done with some amazing illustrations. Definitely a must for people who love Christmas books, especially this story, and so worth what the author is selling it for.

'Twas Nochebuena
'Twas Nochebuena - Roseanne Greenfield Thong,Sara Palacios

11/30/14 ** Definitely take time to read the illustrations too - the dog and cat are hilarious.

 

A re-imagining of the traditional Clement "Twas the Night Before Christmas" poem. Several words in each stanza are in Spanish. A glossary at the back provides the definitions of the Spanish words, though I wish it also gave pronunciations also.
