Description

Learn all about saying "Thanks" as these flannel-clad animal friends thank their way through taco day in this adventure starring Turkey and the letter T.

This zany group of animal friends models positive behaviors in stories that will have little ones giggling and joining in to "read" along. Each book focuses on a single letter of the alphabet and uses repetition and humor to explore concepts such as love, gratitude, and patience.

In T Is for Thanks (and Turkey!), an interjecting turkey and his friends exhibit helpful behavior and gratitude in the midst of some rather unusual situations. The humorous series of events is conveyed through simple text that builds upon itself with each new T word: "T is for Thanks and Tacos and Trampoline." Children will enjoy predicting the repeating elements and recognizing the letter T as they learn about thankfulness with these adorably hip animal friends.
