10 Fat Turkeys is one my girls' favorite books. We have read this story so many times (for years now). Even when it isn't around Thanksgiving. They love it. 10 Fat Turkeys is a silly and very entertaining story about 10 turkeys sitting on a fence. It is a wonderful story to read with younger children because it rhymes, has repetition, and has counting. My girls find this story to be hilarious and they laugh every single time we read it. I really enjoy reading it with them. It isn't really a Thanksgiving story, but we like to read it especially around Thanksgiving because of the turkeys. I highly recommend reading this one. It is fun and kids will love it.
