This is a heart-wrenching story about an adoring Grandmother who lovingly prepares an enormous Thanksgiving dinner for her family each year and saves the wishbones from all her poultry throughout the year to make wishes with each of her grandchildren.After she dies, the family tries to recreate her fantastic meal, with mixed results and almost disasterous obstacles along the way.This is a story that tugs on your heartstrings and brings a lump to your throat as you read it, so it's probably best to read in private.Our girls looked in amazement as I choked back the tears.It's a bit long and deals with the death of a loved one, so it's probably better to read it with older children.The paintings that accompany the story are fantastic.
