One Big Turkey by Anne Vittur Kennedy ~ Children's Book Review + Giveaway




I'm so excited about the upcoming autumn season. This is my favorite time of the year! There's so much to enjoy, the pretty colors of the foliage around, pumpkin everything, apple everything, and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Even though we are still in September, I've been getting a sneak peek at the latest holiday book releases for children. Throughout the upcoming weeks, I'll be sharing each plenty of them with Our Everyday Harvest readers. To start the holiday releases off for everyone, I have a super fun book to share that's perfect for toddlers and preschoolers called One Big Turkey.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Count your blessings! Join one big turkey and his forest friends as they celebrate the harvest season. Children will count along with big turkey, squirrel, and their forest friends all the reasons they have to be grateful. Sweet, rhyming text will help children count everything they have to be thankful for, including food, friends, full tummies, and most of all, God! This board book presents parents with an adorable and simple way to teach their children about giving thanks.


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.


If were reading my blog back around March of this year then you may remember me sharing an adorable Easter themed book called One Spring Lamb. I'm happy to be back with Anne Vittur Kennedy's latest release just in time for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. 



This board book is very reminiscent of One Spring Lamb in that it offers precious rhyming prose to share the many wonders of the season. Deer are nibbling on bright red apples from a tree, pumpkins are growing in the patch, and the colorful leaves are falling. My son loves counting things, so he enjoys giving me a great demonstration of his awesome number skills while reading this book.

Four stalks of wheat–look who's searching for some seeds.
Four ears of corn–that is all a turkey needs!




While the story offers good counting fun, it also provides an glimpse of the ways we can appreciate the change of seasons. Of course I can't forget to mention the colorful illustrations throughout that include plenty of woodlands creatures. My little one also loves animals, so he enjoyed checking out the artwork throughout.

One Big Turkey is the perfect little book for young children who are just learning how to count. Even the skilled little counting champs out there will enjoy this adorable rhyming tale that celebrates autumn, Thanksgiving, and the many blessings God provides during this time of the year.
