Disclosure: I wrote this review of One Big Turkey on behalf of Tommy Nelson.  All opinions are my own.

One of my son’s favorite stories is One Spring Lamb written by Anne Vittur Kennedy.  She has a new book out that is similar, except it’s related to fall and Thanksgiving.  I can’t tell you how many times we’ve read this book over and over.  Little M is definitely thrilled to have another book like his favorite because enjoys counting so much. This one is called One Big Turkey and it’s been a big hit.

About One Big Turkey

You can count your blessings with your child as you read along together with One Big Turkey. The beautiful, board book makes counting an enjoyable learning experience. The rhyming text will take you and your child on a fun, Thanksgiving adventure.

About the Author

Anne Vittur Kennedy loves the quiet space of her studio and lives in Ohio with her husband, Jack; her dog, Brody; and her horses, Sitka and Frisco.  Similar books she has written, include One Shining Star (perfect for the Christmas season) and One Spring Lamb (related to Easter).

My Thoughts

Even though the book is geared towards children 0-4 years old, there are many sight words that my 5-year-old picked up on.  This book is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving season. I love that it’s a board book.  It makes it very hard for my kids to accidentally (or on purpose) rip the cover or pages. You can purchase the same book we received for $8.99 at Faith Gateway Store.

    When they were young, I would recount the blessings that God had given us that day in our daily prayers.

    I think teaching children to say thank you is important. Several ways we do this: I keep a box of crafts that is only used when creating thank you cards. We have a rule that a new gift (or toy) cannot be used until after the thank you note is completed.

    We talk about how we are thankful for small things – a sunny day, fresh fruit, etc.

    We always give to others that don’t have as much, so they know how blessed they are.

    We teach them to appreciate the things they have and to share with others. They attend children’s Sunday School each week to help them learn to count their blessings.

    My third child past-away of S.I.D.S. in 1977, and when the children would ask me where’s our Angel, and I would say she’s in heaven. They would say she can’t play with us? I would say no she’s an Angel and she has to play with the angels. My son said I don’t think I would not like playing up their without you Mommy. I would just say count your blessings as I do my love. 🙂 I have a beautiful smart son now who has two beautiful smart children.

    I teach my kids to say please and thank you and to appreciate what they have instead of wanting something else or wanting more all the time.

    We thank God each night as a family for all that we have- family, friends, health etc and my girls each pray about the things they are thankful for.
