Pookie’s Thanksgiving

S. & S./Boynton Bookworks. (Little Pookie). Sept. 2022. 16p. Board $6.99. ISBN 9781665922630.
PreS-K–A new addition to Pookie and Mom’s adventures, and they are getting ready for a Thanksgiving feast. At the center of their holiday celebration is food, family, and an abundance of gratitude. Pookie and Mom move about their kitchen, noting some of the important steps on their pie-making journey. “Here’s a spoon and a bowl. We will both wash our hands, then we’re ready to roll! … 1 apple, 1 pumpkin are the pies we are making.” Pookie and Mom take pride in their preparations and cannot wait to welcome their three dinner mates. Once their meal is done, they take turns sharing what they are thankful for. “I am thankful for midnight, and moonlight, and stars.” “I am thankful for family, and being together.” This book is a direct introduction to gratitude for the youngest listeners and readers, softly wrapped in the charm of Boynton’s accessible sketches, pig characters, and primary and complementary colors.
VERDICT A board book worthy of addition to home and early education libraries.
