Thanksgiving is Here! – Children’s Book Review

Thanksgiving is Here!

by Diane Goode

This lovely book is playful and informative about our North American Thanksgiving celebration. It’s a family event where everyone shows up to; eat and entertain while helping out.

Goode’s illustrations speak or read volumes to the few words she writes in this book. You will have to read it more than once to get all the information and suggested thoughts, it is a pleasure to share the re-reads with family, especially children.

Goode’s illustrations share the love of all family members including pets and the family activities like checkers or knitting. The story is a family profile index in a funny way, which one are you? The illustrations demonstrate feelings and emotions that typically happen on Thanksgiving like; feeling stuffed with food, a surprise visitor, or the Fall weather with coats and falling leaves.

Enjoy this Thanksgiving and Happy Art Making with pen & ink and watercolour like illustrator Diane Goode.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
