0N SALE: Marlo Thomas and Friends ThanksgivingRegular price $21.95 Save $-21.95
Did you ever dream of talking to a mermaid?
Can you imagine facing off with a bully who barely reaches your knees?
What would you do with a box of golden coins?
Have you ever said thank you to...a button?
And how would you respond if you met a magic genie who asked you for a handout instead of granting you a wish?
Free to Be...You and Me creator Marlo Thomas has once again produced a joyful volume for children and the grown-ups in their lives.
Reaching into the heads and hearts of our most acclaimed writers, artists, and performers, Thanks & Giving celebrates the best things in life -- family, friendship, giving, thankfulness, and love (and just for fun, a few of their opposites -- stinginess, bullying, ingratitude, and the occasional urge to stamp your feet and throw a fit). From Tiger Woods and Maurice Sendak to Hilary Duff and Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo, this colorful collection of stories, poems, and songs will take readers on a lighthearted and thoughtful (but never overserious) adventure.
Whether you're gazing at the brilliant child's-eye paintings of illustrator Eric Carle, or laughing out loud at the off-the-wall humor of Mel Brooks, you'll enjoy every step of the magical journey that the creators of Thanks & Giving have planned for you:
• Delight in Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith's fractured fable starring a mouse, a bird, and a sausage who learn all about sharing -- the hard way.
• Hold on tight as Rosie Perez recounts the tale of a little girl confronted with a heart-stopping decision.
• Rock along with Kevin and Michael Bacon's funky valentine to sibling rivalry and brotherly love.
• And laugh with Ray Romano as he reveals how his life was changed by a giant burrito.
