I loved every single sentence of this book. Often I‘m anxiously reading because I want to know how a story resolves. I didn‘t care how this resolved because that would mean this experience was over. I was interested in every aspect -including the story of Chico, the bird. The setting - Cypress - I need to know more!

AmyG It‘s one of the books I am now reading and I am in love with a fig tree! ❤️ 1w

The book explores the conflict between Greek and Turkish Cypriots through two lovers, one from each ethnicity. It‘s an exploration of family and culture and an encouragement to healing. I initially gave a little side-eye to the use of a fig tree as a sentient character, but Shafak really made it work. This was quite good.

squirrelbrain I liked this one too. 1w

So beautiful. This feels like some of Elif‘s pain from not being able to return to Turkey comes alive in this story. Such a 💔 story of humans and the hurt we cause each other. I must admit though my favorite character was the fig tree😊

A Turkey for Thanksgiving | Eve Bunting, Diane De Groat

This is my favorite Thanksgiving book. It appears to get a little violent and really builds tension. With sub shortages and covid restrictions, yesterday I had mine and the music teacher's reading groups in the library. We couldn't do our normal lessons. So for the 1st time ever we sat on the carpet spread out to hear a story. Then we wrote Thanksgiving words and drew turkeys. Some of my kids can't write their own names! But they wrote THANKS 😊

mdm139 This is my favorite Thanksgiving book too. 2w
mandarchy @mdm139 I love pointing out that all the animals are vegetarian except the turkey. The group I had yesterday were all turkey eaters, so they were not scared at all for the turkey. But Bunting menu items are the gem in this story. 😋 she makes dried alfalfa sound good. 2w
kspenmoll I love Eve Bunting‘s books. 1w
