Mary's world seemed upside down since living in America. Her family made the move from Ireland, so she missed her friend and also having food to eat. In her mind, there wasn't anything to be grateful for until her parents got through to her and explained to Mary the representation of Five Kernels on Thanksgiving.
The story in this picture book is great, but i was really amazed with the pictures. Robert Papp's illustrations are beautiful paintings that look so close to an actual photograph. This book is recommended for the age range from 4-7 where children can understand how Thanksgiving celebration came about and why we continue to celebrate it in America.
