"Thanks for the candles gleaming. Thanks for the faces beaming... Thanks for the bright fall sky. Thanks for the birds' goodbye."
Fall is a time of blue skies and apple pies, playing in leaves and sun-dappled trees. Thanks for Thanksgiving's joyful text and vibrant colours are a feast that celebrates Canada's most glorious season.
The text and warm, glowing colour illustrations of this Canadian Thanksgiving picture book conjure up the rich sights, sounds, smells, and feelings of the holiday.
Heather Patterson loved stories and pictures from the time her mother first read to her. Since then she has chosen various careers - teacher, mother and children's book club editor - that allow her to indulge her love of picture books.
