Rettie and the Ragamuffin Parade-A Thanksgiving Parade by Trinka Hakes Noble, illustrated by David C. Gardner
This is a great story to add to your rotation. It is slim pickin’s when it comes to Thanksgiving focused books. Those out there are more oft about turkeys, inaccurate pilgrim stories or pumpkins, but the author has given us a real Thanksgiving story, with a focus on gratitude and connection to modern day tradition. I hope that there will be future books featuring Rettie.
I received a copy of this book to review from Sleeping Bear Press but I was not financially compensated, nor required to say something positive, in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my experience and observations while reading this book.
