Thanksgiving Mice
Bethany Roberts
Illustrated by Doug Cushman
Picture Book
Ages 4 to 6
Clarion Books, 2001, 0-618-60486-3
  The mice are getting things ready for the special Thanksgiving play that they are going to be staging. Costumes need to be made, lines need to be learned, and the set needs to be painted. There is so much to do and so little time to do it in for it is almost time for the show - "The Story of Thanksgiving."
  Without too many problems or glitches, the mice tell the story of the journey of the pilgrims, their hardships, and their victories. In fact they do such a good job that their audience claps and stamps as the curtain falls. Best of all the playacting mice and their friends share a wonderful feast together in celebration for Thanksgiving.
  A simple text and cheerful pictures make this a perfect little book for Thanksgiving. Children who are playing parts in their own performance about the special day will be delighted to see how the mice pull off their show.
