Every time you re-read a book to a child, you and your child will discover new things. It might be something in a picture, or a joke you missed the first time around. In The Great Thanksgiving Food Fight, the names of author Michael G. Lewis' children and wife are hidden throughout the book, along with some other little notes. On subsequent readings of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!, encourage your child to remember the sequence of events by following the pictures.
1. Create a list of things to be thankful for.
2. Create your own zany "There Was an Old Lady" story.
