Product Description

Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' is a delightful picture book to read near Thanksgiving. This picture book companion is filled with comprehension activities, vocabulary practice, and a writing craft that your students will enjoy.

Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' Book Summary: Thanksgiving is always a special day at the Tappletons'. But this Thanksgiving nothing seems to go right. First, the turkey slides down the icy hill into the pond. Then the baker sells out of pies. It looks like it’s going to be a pretty bleak holiday…until Grandmother reminds everyone that there is more to Thanksgiving than a turkey and trimmings.
