Christopher, a 5-year-old boy, is getting ready to go to Grandma's for Thanksgiving when he discovers he can't find his shoes. With Ted E.'s help, shoes are found, and he, Ted E., and Mommy head for Grandma's. After greeting the cousins and uncles, Christopher heads to the kitchen. He finds his grandma and aunts preparing the food. As he sees each food he makes up a rhyme to show just how hungry he is. Grandma's repeating assurance lets him know that it will soon be time to eat. The family is very thankful for the food and fellowship of being together. After dinner everyone helps clean up and Grandma gets to rest. Time to go so Christopher, Ted E., and Mommy head for home. Just a little way down the road, Christopher discovers that he forgot his shoes. Children will have fun supplying rhyming words in the poems. They will soon learn what Grandma responds and join in each time with the reader. Children are given a chance to predict what will come next at the beginning of the story, and again at the end. Christopher's father is not mentioned in the story. The reader can decide why he is absent.
