Historical Setting: 1820s United States

When their parents are called away to care for an ailing grandmother, seven children continue preparations for the family's Thanksgiving meal, hoping to surprise and cheer their parents on their return. And although the plum pudding is rock-hard and the turkey stuffing bitter, the children's efforts are appreciated, and the holiday gathering is enjoyed by all. A high-spirited, good-humored account of a rural, 19th-century New Hampshire Thanksgiving, this story demonstrates Alcott's belief that health, hard work, and cheery good will are of greater value than wealth and position.
