This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for…
- My friends and family, of course.
- The delicious existence of baked goods.
- More books coming out digitally so ‘death-by-book-avalanche’ is not so imminent in my future.
- And the following Kidsmomo video based on Daniel Pinkwater’s The Hoboken Chicken Emergency, because it will always remind me how lucky we are that oversized chickens aren’t terrorizing our streets:
Meet Henrietta. She’s the 266-pound chicken that Arthur brings home when all the stores are sold out of turkey. Obviously, Arthur’s family can’t eat Henrietta for Thanksgiving dinner, so they decide to keep her as a pet. And that’s when the Hoboken Chicken Emergency begins…
Let us know in the comments — what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
Nancy is currently imagining the delicious mountain of mashed potatoes that would accompany a chicken the size of Henrietta… yum… oh… uh… just… kidding.
