Item description for Pardon Me. It's Ham, Not Turkey by Cindy Huffman Lisa Suhay...

Rhyming text describes what really happened at the first Thanksgiving and dispells commonly-held misconceptions about the holiday.

Publishers Description
Pig Begs President's Pardon It's mystery and intrigue at the White House! Why would an American President pardon a turkey? How did the turkey become the symbol of Thanksgiving? Such are the questions that perplex a young student, who wonders how these traditions got started. In his quest for answers, he discovers that the historical truth of the first Thanksgiving isn't quite as expected. The mystery unfolds in delightful fashion in the new children's picture book Pardon Me. It's Ham, Not Turkey. From celebrated author Lisa Suhay (There Goes A Mermaid!) and award-winning illustrator Pamela Barcita (Ruby Lee the Bumble Bee), Pardon Me teaches children about the true first Thanksgiving, not the version that many textbooks relate. It also introduces the concept of the President pardoning a pig this Thanksgiving, and promotes the idea of the humble pig rather than the long-celebrated turkey as the symbol of this national holiday.With its charming, whimsical illustrations, Pardon Me is a delightful interweaving of fact and conjecture that provides a thoroughly enjoyable history lesson for all ages. The story ends with a call to action that encourages readers to sign an online petition supporting a pig pardon.The book's release is timely as the nation prepares to celebrate America's 400th anniversary, the 60th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation, and the Chinese Year of the Pig

Written in singsong rhyme by award-winning author Lisa Suhay and cheerily illustrated by Society of Illustrators honoree Pamela Barcita, Pardon Me, It's Ham, Not Turkey tells of the unusual presidential tradition of pardoning a turkey, the real first Thanksgiving that took place nearly two years before the arrival of the Pilgrims (and probably included a meal of ham rather than turkey!), and much more. A final page of historical notes rounds out this lighthearted reflection upon the origin of a cherished holiday.
