Even though I don't usually appreciate it when new authors take up classic characters, I was charmed by this offering.

Corduroy and his doll/stuffed animal friends celebrate various aspects of Thanksgiving day, baking, giving thanks, playing football, watching a parade, feasting.It is a board book so perfect for the littlest Thanksgiving reader.

I also think the content is nicely flexible because, for example, when it says they "say what they are thankful for" the illustration shows them holding hands around the table. This could be secular or interpreted as prayer, too, depending on the family.

I also personally was so happy there is no turkey in the feast!There is a cornucopia instead. This is so refreshing for vegan and vegetarian families.(Though there is a milk carton and egg for the baking scene so it's not vegan.)
