Am I a Turkey?
By: Carmen Jewell
Am I a Turkey? shows us that even though we might not be who we think we are, we can still grow up in a loving family and community.
Based on a true event that happened at the author’s home, this is the story of a rooster that hatches under a turkey. Because birds imprint with the one who nurtures them, the rooster thinks the turkey is its mother.
As an adopted child herself, the author can relate to being loved by parents who were not her biological parents. She wrote this story to remind readers that love comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors!
