In Tuyet’s elementary-school classroom the days leading up to Thanksgiving-Turkey Day, as Mrs. Cook calls it-are full of turkeys: in songs, crafts and stories. So when her mother tells her they’ll be having Ba Noi’s special Vietnamese duck dish for their Thanksgiving meal, Tuyet is distressed. It’s delicious, and she even has seconds, but what will the other kids think? Turns out her multicultural classmates ate noodles, lamb, roast beef, enchiladas and tofu as well as the customary gobbler.

Duck for Turkey Day is the story of a young girl named Tuyet's Thanksgiving experience. In their class, Tuyet's teacher calls Thanksgiving "Turkey Day" leading her to believe that her family has forgotten about the turkey! Upon returning home and realizing that they would be eating duck instead of turkey, Tuyet was worried that they couldn't possibly celebrate the holiday without it. After seeing her family excited for the duck, and tasting her grandmother's special preparation, Tuyet began to feel better about the meal. Back at school the next week, her fear about "Turkey Day" was finally relieved when she found out she was not the only one who didn't eat turkey on turkey day and that the true unifying factor for Thanksgiving was spending time with friends and family. Duck for Turkey Day provides a young child's cultural understanding of the Thanksgiving holiday and the beauty of celebrating things differently.

This is one of my favorites. It is great way to introduce young children to other cultures and traditions. It is also teaches them that is okay to create your own traditions.

I bought this book for two young children (ages 5 and 6) whose parents are from Vietnam. These children loved it. As a retired teacher of 40 years, I thought the book was wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough. What was nice is that, since I am an Amazon Prime customer, I was able to order the book in time for Thanksgiving.

Great book for teachers of multicultural students. We often get caught up with the turkey on Thanksgiving and make the whole day about the feast. We need to remember that it's not important what we eat, it's spending time with family and friends.

Cute book. Great for introducing different cultures into classrooms. My first graders loved it.
A wonderful little story with kid-friendly illustrations makes this book a good read for your children. Tuyet is a little girl of Vietnamese descent who learns all about Thanksgiving Day in her classroom. The students make a turkey craft, sing songs about turkeys, and learn all about the Pilgrims and the Native Americans. Tuyet thinks that Thanksgiving Day is all about eating a turkey dinner.

Tuyet tells her mother they have to have a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Mom says no, they will be having a duck for dinner. Tuyet's grandmother arrives from New York. Tuyet explains to her grandmother that they are having duck instead of turkey. Grandma proudly tells Tuyet that they are using her recipe from Vietnam for duck and that their family likes duck better than turkey.

Tuyet is so upset about having duck instead of turkey that she goes to her room to count her money. She decides to buy a turkey at the market if she has enough money.

Does Tuyet have enough money to purchase the turkey? What kind of meal does Tuyet have for Thanksgiving dinner? What do you think she tells her classmates and teacher when she returns to school? You'll just have to read this darling story to find out what happens to Tuyet's Thanksgiving dinner and discover the true lesson she learns about Thanksgiving from her family, teacher, and classmates. This little gem of a book is a keeper. Your child will want to read it over and over!
