It's tough being a turkey on Thanksgiving, you never know if you've been invited to enjoy the meal... or to be a part of it! 🤣

This book is just the thing for a lighthearted and humorous read about compassion for all ages! 💜

Turkey or ham
for Thanksgiving?
Or…something else?

This heavily decorated picture book is a favorite for a reason! It so wonderfully depicts shared traditions as they expand across the Native American culture.

A beautiful alternative to Thanksgiving!
