This book is deeply insightful apart from being a spectacular history that sweeps through centuries

A Plump and Perky Turkey | Teresa Bateman, Jeff Shelly

This book is a childrens fiction book that was published in 2001. It is about a town that does not have a turkey for their thanksgiving so they go to find one by saying they need a plump and perky turkey to model for their art contest. The turkey ends up out smarting them and the people never get their turkey. The students in my classroom thought it was funny but i prefer not to do anything turkey related for thanksgiving.

My son is home from Los Angeles for Thanksgiving. I love having him home and I wish I could see him more often than once a year, but it‘s great to have him home. Treasure the time with your children. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🦃🥧🍷 #Thanksgiving #family #turkey #stuffing #pie #cocktails

1. Avoid Thanksgiving events as not even Prof‘s mother can figure out that no, vegans don‘t eat tiny pig flesh sausage chunks in stuffing.

2. Stuffing, but just stuffing stuffing, no added sausage chucks & lawd forgive, raisins. What planet are you from, lady? 😒

Hope you all can tolerate my wry & dry sense of humor. 😉

I grabbed this at the book fair knowing my teachers would be asking me for Thanksgiving read alouds at the last minute. Pilkey is a genius and harkens to the famous scene in Charlotte's Web with the ax.The kids answer the call to action and Thanksgiving becomes again a vegetarian feast, because who can eat anything so fictitiously cute? Put down your 🪓 hatchets and let's celebrate a feast on Thursday for the purpose of peace.

Well that was a blast from the past! Twenty years ago I taught myself Persian so I could read Rumi's actual words. This book is two parallel narratives, that of the extraordinary friendship between Rumi and the dervish Shams of Tabriz, framed as a novel read by unfulfilled middle-aged housewife Ella. It was all rather "romantic" but I enjoyed catching up with an old friend!?

kathedron The audiobook is read by George Blagden. Very good, but now Shams sounds like Athelstan from "Vikings"! ? 2w
BarbaraBB You taught yourself Persian? That is so impressive. A friend of mine tried that too but didn‘t succeed. 2w
IndoorDame I‘m beyond impressed that you taught yourself Persian so you could read Rumi in the original! It‘s not an easy language. 2w
squirrelbrain Wow, you taught yourself Persian?! 2w
kathedron @BarbaraBB @IndoorDame @squirrelbrain What can I say? Rumi was a special interest: I went deep! 😆 2w

📖 11-19-22 || This is an interesting story set on Cyprus with a fig tree as narrator. I would‘ve preferred the story be told in a more linear approach, rather than skipping around different times and perspectives. I wanted to know more about Yusuf and Yiorgis. I do feel like I learned a bit about the history of Cyprus and the Greek and Turkish Cypriots, though…
