The Thanksgiving the Jacks Built and The Thanksgiving the Other Jacks Built are intended to be read together. These books use the same words but different pictures to illustrate Thanksgiving celebrated by an all-American family and an alien family. The books offer a unique opportunity to show students how a change in setting can change the meanings of words, as well as to provide an across-text connection. Familiar text pattern and repetitive language support readers.
