Welcome in Fall with a Good Book - A Great Book About Friendship and Working Together -- Porcupine's Pie by Laura Renauld (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

As soon as Halloween is over, families will start to plan for their annual Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends.  For my birthday each year,  I order a complete turkey dinner from a nearby inn, and have my parents over to enjoy Thanksgiving at my house.  Then, once dinner is over, we put up the Christmas tree and binge watch Christmas movies until it is time to have seconds.  This has become a tradition since I finished my cancer treatment in 2009, and it one thing I look forward to each year.  Not only is the food delicious, and we don't have to do the whole dress up and fight buffet lines, but we also celebrate another year that I am cancer-free.

In addition to watching holiday movies, my mom likes to sit with the girls and read a few Thanksgiving or fall-inspired books with them. This year, I am going to have to sit and share this cute new children's book with the girls, as it has become a favorite of my girls since we received last week.  We have only had this book for a week, but have read it every night at bedtime since.  The girls like how this book is about friendship and coming together to help one another one.  It has a positive message that you can talk about with your child, and the illustrations are cute and really bring this story to life.

If you are looking for a cute children's book about friendship and giving thanks as you gear for Thanksgiving, check out "Porcupine Pie" now available from Beaming Books.  And, be sure to try out the "Friendship Pie" recipe included in the back of this book.  We plan to make it and serve with our Thanksgiving dinner this year.

About this Book:

"Porcupine can’t wait to share Fall Feast with her woodland friends, so when everyone she greets is unable to bake their specialty due to a missing ingredient, Porcupine generously offers staples from her pantry. When Porcupine discovers that she, too, is missing a key ingredient, the friends all work together to create a new Fall Feast tradition. A recipe for “friendship pie” can be found at the end of the book. 
A debut picture book from author Laura Renauld and illustrated by Jennie PohPorcupine’s Pie is the winner of the Beaming Books Picture Book Contest."
