This is the time of year that we associate with turkeys. But we shouldn’t limit these fascinating animals to just one day, or even one month. Turkeys lead amazing lives throughout the entire year.
Gobble, Gobble will expand children’s appreciation for these distinctly American birds as they follow the main character, Jenny, through a year of enchanting discoveries.
Jenny wrote a journal, too! Did you know that wild turkeys once numbered in the millions but nearly disappeared with over-hunting and habitat destruction? Now they’re making a comeback!
Wild turkey scenes come to life through rhyming verses and unique illustrations–block prints over collages. The collages are made from cut and torn paper plus all sorts of things from nature–bark, leaves, feathers, even wasp nests!
The author and illustrator offers tips for children to make their own cut-paper pictures and keep a nature journal. And be sure to use ideas in the Gobble Gobble Nature Exploration Activity Kit in your classroom, school library, or at home.
Not just for thanksgiving, this should be a welcome addition to nature shelves all year-round. –Kirkus Review
