Combining fiction and nonfiction, this dramatic story follows the Robertson family as they prepare for Thanksgiving within the year 1841. As with all Canadian pioneer families, Thanksgiving is really a certain day for the Robertsons, but this year they have a lot more reasons than usual to give thanks. Historically accurate and beautifully rendered pencil illustrations make this a complete resource for home or school. Each chapter of the story is enhanced by specifics about the pioneer period and how Thanksgiving was celebrated in the past. The past comes alive through hands-on activities such as generating a corn dolly or learning to play conkers. Children will learn regarding the wild harvest, harvest superstitions and how the First Peoples celebrated the harvest.
