Turk and Runt by LisaWheeler

This book is a fiction book that I have used every year while teaching second grade, as it is one of my favorite books. This book is a comedy about a family of turkeys. Turk, is a strong bird whom his parents believe that he must be chosen for Thanksgiving, yet are clueless as to why different people are coming to choose the perfect turkey. The younger brother, Runt, is the only one who knows the purpose of the visit and does his best to distract the people. My children love this book as it is really cute and funny. I have been able to use this book to teach about beginning, middle, end, characters, setting, problem, solution, character analysis and persuasive writing. This is a book that I highly recommend as it is a great children’s book.
