Marion Hess Pomeranc is an Albert Whitman author.From Booklist:
Pomeranc takes a familiar seasonal tradition--a school food drive--and makes it a lively, appealing story. Dee brings canned peas for the food drive, but she is unwilling to let them go, never to learn where they wind up. She puts a yellow sticky with her name and school on her can, and sure enough, the church that receives her class contribution sends a thank-you note and asks the children whether they would like to volunteer to serve at the Thanksgiving dinner. On Thanksgiving, Dee not only meets a new friend but also makes sure her peas are the star of the meal. Kids will readily identify with the realistic dialogue, engaging story, and Dee's natural curiosity as she wonders what will happen to her donation. Matching the text is Cote's sprightly art, which uses bright colors and familiar scenes featuring a multi-ethnic cast to tell its story. A good choice for Thanksgiving--and the rest of the year as well. Ilene Cooper
