Thomas is a turkey and he has lost all his feathers-gasp! In this book, readers will retrace Thomas’s steps around the house, picking up a feather at each location until they have helped Thomas find all seven of his brightly colored feathers. (The secret of this book is this: The child’s parents or older siblings must first hide the feathers for the child to find, making the hunt easy or hard depending on the child’s age.) The child will love taking part in this feather hunt, and families will adore this new Thanksgiving tradition.
Ronnie the rabbit asks his parents if they could have a pool. Therefore, his dad hands him a shovel and Ronnie gets to work. With a bit of hard work, some helpful friends, and a positive outlook, it is possible to make dreams into a reality!
The Boy of Joy is a story about a close family friend who sadly lost their youngest brother. Although the sadness is difficult to deal with, the whole family slowly finds ways of coping by doing things they love and connecting to nature. They all start to notice the beautiful signs their brother keeps sending them. This brings the joy back into their family as they all find rainbows and hearts and feathers from their youngest brother. Energy never dies, it just changes form. Even though he is no longer here he is now everywhere.
The choice is yours if you want to be angry about things then be angry, if you want to be sad be sad. Or you could choose to see the beautiful moments, to see the beautiful signs as well, it’s up to you. I will choose to see the rainbow after the rain and the hearts in the clouds, it brings me a smile for a mile every time.
