In their class, Tuyet's teacher calls Thanksgiving "Turkey Day" leading her to believe that her family has forgotten about the turkey!

After seeing her family excited for the duck, and tasting her grandmother's special preparation, Tuyet began to feel better about the meal.

by Jacqueline Jules and illustrated by Kathryn Mitter. 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 book. The artwork from illustrator Kathryn Mitter is colorful and cute - well-matched to the story. She developed it through the eye of a Vietnamese girl, Tuyet, who understood that Thanksgiving meant turkey but her family preferred duck.
