Turkey books and a good time

Today's blog is a little different than usual.  Instead of telling you about books I have read, I will tell you about books I want to read before and during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

I am a big fan of the Macy Day Parade.  I watch as much as I can and yes.....I still have my old favorite balloons and floats I look for. And, of course, new ones. I'm just as excited as the little kids when Little Bill, Abby Cadabby,  Scooby Doo and Kermit float by.  And I can't wait for you-know-who......the big guy himself!  The little kid in me also can't wait to read Milly and the Macy's Parade by Shana Corey and illustrated by Brett Helquist.   The publisher has the description as: When a spirited little girl named Milly imagines a way to combine her family's old world traditions with their new American heritage, she helps create a treasured American pastime.   And it looks like a book that will be a traditional read in my household!
