Synopsis: Arthur finds his role as director of the Thanksgiving play a difficult one, especially since no one will agree to play the turkey.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Re-enact the play in the book.
•  Draw a picture of you as the turkey, and join Arthur in the fun.
•  Make the turkey beaks and waddles the children wore.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
