Product Description
Thanksgiving story perfect for the elementary classroom or school library.

Every year in Washington D.C. the President pardons a turkey before Thanksgiving. Find out how that tradition started. Go back to the presidency of Abraham Lincoln and learn how his youngest son, Tad saved Jack the turkey.

From School Library Journal:
oung Tad Lincoln, horrified to learn that his tame turkey is destined to be served at the Thanksgiving feast, begs his father to pardon his pet. This fictionalized account of a true incident is filled with tidbits about Tad's known antics in the White House-charging visitors tolls, setting up a fruit stand, and discharging a toy cannonball into the Cabinet Room door. They add touches of humor to the tale, as do the stylized gouache illustrations. A few of Wallner's paintings are inconsistent in proportion or perspective, but give the overall impression of charming folk art. An informational section at the end features a photograph of Lincoln with his son and explains that, though much of the story is invented, Tad's exploits were legendary; those mentioned in the book are based on actual accounts.

There are 13 ready-to-go extension activities for this book along with a copy of Lincoln's Proclamation that made Thanksgiving a national holiday.
