Sam's class has been busy preparing a special feast to celebrate Thanksgiving.  As the rest of the class thinks about a special project and "thankful feather" to share during the feast, Sam feels as though he's faltering, and not sure what he's really "thankful" for.  However, as the festivity preparations continue and eventually take place, Sam's project is ruined.  However, with the help of his class, Sam discovers what it is that he's truly thankful for - the perfect thing to write on his feather to add to the class' yarn turkey. 

This book is a great way to introduce young children to the most basic details about Thanksgiving - how the holiday came to be and the reasons that it is still celebrated today.  There's still time - make sure to pick up a copy of your own while you're out finishing the shopping for your festivities!  You might even find a new tradition to begin in your family!
