This is a lift-the-flap book, not a traditional board book as we usually feature on readertotz. However, it's a wonderful introduction to the Thanksgiving holiday for totz. It's super-simple, but tells about the pilgrims sailing to America, Native Americans teaching them to plant crops, and the Thanksgiving feast. Bright, graphic illustrations and just enough information for totz. Parents can fill in with more about family traditions as the pages turn.
