It’s Not About You, Mrs. Turkey: A Love Letter About the True Meaning of Thanksgiving by Soraya Diase Coffelt is a charming children’s story about the true meaning of Thanksgiving. The book includes cute illustrations by Tea Soraya. All proceeds from the book sales go to the As the Stars of the Sky Foundation, which promotes literacy.
Written from a child’s perspective, It’s Not About You, Mrs. Turkey tells the story of how the Pilgrims traveled to the New World and met the Wampanoag Indians. The book includes key facts and information about the first Thanksgiving, and it serves as a good history lesson for young children. Most importantly, Coffelt reminds children that Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to God. I like how the book ends with a prayer about letting Jesus into your heart. It is a great story to read with your kids at Thanksgiving time!
