This is a lovely story celebrating what Thanksgiving is REALLY about.
You see, everyone in Dynomike’s class is excited, all they can do is talk about food all the time. They can’t wait for the home bell to ring, and love chattering about the tasty things their family enjoy on Thanksgiving Day.
Dynomike listens to them talking about all the delicious treats they are looking forward to on this special holiday, and feels sad. For him, in his house there will be no turkey, pumpkin pies, corn fritters or other lovely treats eat.
He goes very quiet, and his friends wonder what is the matter? So he explains, it’s because it has been a difficult year for his mom, and they haven’t any money to buy lots of lovely food.
At home, all is sad, and then on Thanksgiving night there is a knock at the door.
Who could it be?
His friends arrive with lot of delicious treats for him, and his mum.
And so, in the true spirit of Thanksgiving, they all have a very special dinner, and joining hands around the table Dynomike, with all his special friends, give thanks to the Lord for all he provides. Then afterwards they have lots of fun, and Dynomike is so happy because he has had the best ‘Friendsgiving’ ever.
I downloaded this super rhyming book and read it to my grandsons when they came around. They loved it and can’t wait to read more of Dynomike’s adventures.
About the Author: Frankie B. Rabbit was born and raised underground; the underground rap scene that is. Walking alone through the rough soils of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and now currently in New Jersey; he traveled most of the North East battle rapping other upcoming hip-hop artists at local night clubs to only find himself getting paid in vegetable scraps and free admissions. While, he was winning a majority of his freestyle rap battles, Frankie B. Rabbit was only participating for bonus money to keep his whiskers afloat. Frankie B. Rabbit’s talents were not self-fulfilling for him, and he was seeking to take his talents elsewhere; hopefully to make a difference.
So, while, his rap career was dragging with monotony, he enters, yet another, freestyle rap battle at B.B. Kings in New York City—which ended being his last rap battle after being defeated by an 8 year old second grader in the first round—his name was Dynomike!
“The lyrical niceness, my rhymes so tight I give nightmares to vice grips! This mic is five bucks, this night is five bucks, and Dynomike is — is priceless!” That was only one of the sixteen bars he dropped on Frankie B. Rabbit.
“That kid has some serious lyrics. I was in awe to see someone, especially at his age, have so much passion for something. I said to myself, this kid just gets it. . .” Frankie B. Rabbit’s defeat was more of an enlightenment. This moment, he decided to partner with the young rap phenomena and do something that would be fun, and more importantly make a difference—that’s when Frankie B. Rabbit’s children’s book career began; his defeat against 8 year old Dynomike, was his inspiration to write a series of children’s books–to do something that matters.
About the Book: It’s almost Thanksgiving, and Dynomike’s friends are dreaming of all the delicious foods they’ll be eating. But Dynomike is depressed because he won’t be celebrating with a big feast this year. Just when he thinks his Thanksgiving is ruined, Dynomike gets something to really be thankful for.
It is easy to get caught up in the festivities of Thanksgiving and forget that not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate. But Dynomike: Friendsgiving reveals how thinking about others at Thanksgiving can give everyone more to be thankful for.
