5.0

Tuyet’s struggle with her emotions as she feels like her family doesn’t fit in and is doing Thanksgiving wrong is powerful through her child’s eyes. This glimpse of the way that different cultures celebrate Thanksgiving by focusing on the essence of the holiday rather than specific American foods is a beautiful reminder of what matters most on Thanksgiving—family and friends, not the Turkey. This book is a reminder to be inclusive and accepting!
