Percy Isaac Gifford has some rules for a successful Thanksgiving to get the most from the day. A few rules are to wear whatever mom tells you, volunteer to help dad, keep the greetings short, and eat everything on your plate. Percy explains that the day is also about showing loved ones that you care and gives each a snug hug. Normally, you shouldn’t tell children to eat and eat but it’s only one day. The book is written in a fun rhyme.
