28. Claudia and the First Thanksgiving (#91)

SCHOLASTIC

Claudia’s drama class writes a Thanksgiving play for the children at Stoneybrook Elementary, which is fun and awesome. They’re getting to flex their creative muscles. And they’re tackling a subject that gives them a lot of creative license. So, they do what they think is a solid representation of what they think the first Thanksgiving was like. But some parents and teachers say it’s un-American and protest. Probably because they feel it didn’t fit the same tired narrative we’ve been fed about Thanksgiving. This subject sounds like it could be from 2019 rather than 1990, which shows how little things have changed.
