10 Fat Turkeys

Share It!

One of the best things about being a grandmama is cruising the kid’s section at the book store (physical or virtual).  Oh, how I’ve missed reading/buying/sharing silly fun books.  The high-pitched voices and acting out of scenes is a glorious bonus (or at least I hope it is).

Garry and I were out together when I came across this one: 10 Fat Turkeys.

We read parts of it aloud and could totally imagine Sweet E loving it, which of course meant it came home with us.

 Product Deets from Publisher:

This silly rhyming story about ten turkeys teaches children how to count backwards.

“Looky!” says a silly turkey swinging from a vine.
Gobble gobble wibble wobble.
Whoops! Now there are nine.

Girls and boys will gobble up this hilarious story about ten goofy turkeys and their silly antics: swinging from a vine, strutting on a boar, doing a noodle dance, and more. Veteran author Tony Johnston has written a joyful text, which first-time illustrator Richard Deas brings to life as wild and wacky fun!

The book had us at gobble gobble wibble wobble. Go ahead, I’ll wait while you say it a few times.


While this is a fun book to read around Thanksgiving, it really has nothing to do with the holiday.  It’s a silly romping read year round.

Got a book you love to share with itty-bitties this time of year?  Tell us!

Happy high-pitched reading and acting out the scenes, y’all!
