The perfect picture book for the holiday, this hilarious twist on the traditional Thanksgiving feast features Turkey as he hops from hiding place to hiding place to avoid ending up as the main course.
With Thanksgiving only one day away, can Turkey find a place to hide from the farmer who's looking for a plump bird for his family feast?
Maybe he can hide with the pigs . . . or the ducks . . . or the horses . . .
Uh-oh! Here comes the farmer!
Run, Turkey, run!

This is my absolute favorite Thanksgiving book to read to my students. I am an early childhood educator and my students absolutely love when they get to "read" along with me. This is a story your children will ask you to read over and over again. This book reminds me of the story Jump Frog Jump in the way that the children get to participate in the story. This is definitely a must-have for Thanksgiving!
What's not to like about a turkey running from the farmer the day before Thanksgiving? Kids will get a kick out of watching turkey scramble through the farm in an attempt to avoid becoming dinner. He tries to blend in with the other farmyard animals, but his disguises are not quite up to par. The publisher recommends ages 4 and up, but I think children as young as 2 1/2 would appreciate this tale. Best of all, they get to chime in on the refrain, "Run, turkey-run!"
I like this book because it is funny and the illustrations are really good. My favorite part was when the turkey hid in the mud like a pig! I think this book would be perfect for ages 4-6.
