National bestselling author, Daniel Whyte III, along with family and friends, has written a light and fresh celebration of Thanksgiving in Money Under the Car Seat & Other Things to Thank God For. In this book, Whyte tells the story of being a “literal Scrooge” and how the warm spirit of Thanksgiving drew him out of the “non-holiday cold.” Traditional and non-traditional Thanksgiving recipes, Thanksgiving quotations, poems, activities, songs, and serious and humorous things to be thankful for are included in the pages of Money Under the Car Seat, along with various writings on the meaning of Thanksgiving from different perspectives.
This book is more than just another traditional celebration of the holiday of Thanksgiving; rather, it was written to “rekindle an excitement for Thanksgiving in the hearts of some who have allowed that fire to dim a little over the years, and to inspire the Thanksgiving lovers to love this holiday even more and to celebrate it better.”
Whyte says, “Money Under the Car Seat is simply a light and fresh celebration of an old holiday called Thanksgiving. This book is designed to be taken seriously and it is also designed not to be taken seriously. It is largely a fun book that looks at Thanksgiving through fresh eyes. Thanksgiving Day is a big deal to us and we hope that it is to you as well. However, it is also our hope that this book will not only help you to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, but will help you to stay in ‘a Thanksgiving state of mind’ year around.”
