Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "In a unique take on the cumulative classic "This Is the House That Jack Built," a family gathers with friends and neighbors to share a meal around a table that brims with associations: napkins sewn by Mom, glasses from Mom and Dad's wedding, silverware gifted to Dad by his grandma long ago. Not to mention the squash from the garden, the bread baked by Gran, and the pies made by the young narrator (with a little help). Serving up a diverse array of dishes and faces, this warm and welcoming story is poised to become a savored part of Thanksgiving traditions to come. A beautifully illustrated celebration of bounty and gratitude, family and friendship, perfect for the holidays and every day."--provided by publisher.

    PreS-Gr 2—In this book set in cumulative rhythm similar to the popular classic "This Is the House that Jack Built," each item added to the spread is a worthy contribution to the whole. The hand-crafted table is followed by sunflowers picked by a cousin, napkins sewn by Mom, and glasses from Mom and Dad's wedding. Ultimately, the table overflows with an appealing array of edibles: the squash that took over the garden, the potatoes and peppers that were roasted, the bread baked by Gran, and Dad's huckleberry jam. There are also toasty tamales and spicy samosas included. The radiantly cheerful illustrations portray adults and children of color alongside white characters, but it is never clear who Grandad and the parents are within the group. Some of the characters are not even seated at the final meal enjoyed at the end. Still, the joyous colored pencil images of each individual family member sequentially adding to the meal should resonate with young children. The abiding joy of families feasting together, all adding to the worthwhile whole, is largely what makes this book so appealing. VERDICT Despite a few subtle oversights, a welcome addition to a Thanksgiving unit and a useful addition to the topic of sequencing for young children.—Etta Anton, Yeshiva of Central Queens, NY
