    One thought on “The Thanksgiving Bowl”

    1. A cute story about a family's Thanksgiving Bowl, into which they place their little notes saying what they are most thankful for that year. At dinner, Grandma reads the notes aloud. But, in the hub-bub of Thanksgiving clean-up, the bowl falls on the ground and gets swept away by the wind, thus beginning it's year odyssey in being a home or useful object to many creatures, both woodland creatures and humans.I had a few little "issues" with the book, such as that the family was eating a picnic Tha [...]

    2. My child liked it because the tradition of the Thanksgiving bowl is similar to our own where we make a turkey craft and fill it with drawings or writings (depends on age) of things for which we are grateful. Cute tradition, cute story, and it is a children's book so I should take it for that lesson and stop. I know I should. But As a parent, I struggled with the idea of this plastic bowl floating around from place to place for a year, fulfilling a use, then people forget it about it and then it [...]

    3. A bowl Grandma uses for "Thanks" notes from everyone goes on an adventure. It finds its way through various lives and animals and people, but returns just in time for the next year's Thanksgiving notes.

    4. I never understand books that give literally everything away in the summary. The summary seems longer than the book. I couldn’t believe as I read on that it told all about the bowl before we’d even started reading the story, that it’s used at Grandma’s house for the family to put lists of what they’re thankful for inside. One Thanksgiving it blows off the table and is lost for a year, as it’s passed on to owner after owner and the new owner always finds a different use for it. Otters [...]

    5. At Grandma Grace's house on Thanksgiving Day, it is traditional to write down an "I Am Thankful for" note and drop it into the big, yellow bowl in the hallway. After the Thanksgiving feast, Grandma Grace reads the notes aloud and the family guesses who wrote each one. Inadvertently, the yellow bowl is forgotten and left outdoors. Throughout the year, the bowl is tossed about and travels throughout the countryside, giving refuse, joy, and delight to families, human and non-human alike. Fortunatel [...]

    6. This story shows a family participating in a tradition at Thanksgiving of placing unsigned slips of paper into a yellow bowl saying what each person is thankful for; a guessing game ensues as the family tries to guess which person put each slip of paper in as Grandma reads them off. After dinner, the bowl gets blown away in the wind (this story takes place in a warmer climate, so the Thanksgiving meal was enjoyed outside). After a year of adventures with neighborhood gardners, raccoons, a mouse, [...]

    7. I like the idea of a Thanksgiving Bowl. I hope to incorporate it into our family tradition.A nice story and it was nice to follow the travels of the bowl.

    8. This is your basic holiday story--nothing special about the writing, but better story line than some others for this particular holiday.

    9. There are so few great Thanksgiving books, but this one definitely makes that short list! What a fun and creative story that wanders through thankfulness!
