Teaching gratitude is important to our family. The book, One is a Feast for Mouse, A Thanksgiving Tale, written by Judy Cox and illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler, is a fun, engaging story that lends itself to good family discussion. Mouse goes searching for Thanksgiving leftovers with the mantra, “Give thanks….One will be a feast for me”. But as more tempting foods appear, one becomes more and more. The author and illustrator paint vivid pictures as Mouse starts accumulating more than he needs or can handle. Mouse has to scramble quickly as Cat challenges his feast. We like this book because we enjoy reading about Mouse and the lesson he learns about giving thanks for what is sufficient. We hope reading this book will help you and your family as you contemplate giving thanks!
