My thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed reading this shortened version of An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving. The illustrations are charming and speak volumes to the character of the individuals in the story - what they are thinking, what they are feeling, and how they are behaving. The artist uses bright bold colors as well as soft hues to bring realism and vibrancy to the story.
As usual, a tale told by Miss Alcott is a good read at any age. This little book is a good introduction to Miss Alcott's writings for the young reader. Perhaps it will leave them hankering for a more thorough reading of this particular story (see link below) as well as full volumes of Miss Alcott's works.
I encourage you to get your young child reading the classics and here is a good starting point.
