Publisher’s Description:

It’s a Thanksgiving disaster for Freddy Thresher! When his first-grade class begins planning the annual Thanksgiving play, everyone will have a role. Freddy’s friends are all happy to be Pilgrims and Indians, but there is one part that nobody wants to be-the turkey! Freddy hopes he won’t get the part, but-you guessed it-he gets the unlucky role. Now Freddy has to find a way to play the turkey while everyone is laughing at him.

There aren’t many children’s books with a Thanksgiving theme so I was happy when my daughter brought this book home from her school’s library. She’s five years old and loves the Ready Freddy book series. This book was a fun book for us to read together. The only thing I don’t like is that some of the kids call each other names. I was worried that my daughter would start calling her brothers those names, but luckily she didn’t. This is a great middle grade series for both boys and girls.
