Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

  • How much fun was life aboard the Mayflower?
  • Did Pilgrims dance with Indians to Plymouth Rock?
  • If there was no football to watch on TV, what did people do during the first Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving today is a time for families to say grace and gobble turkey. But why did the Pilgrims start this tradition? And who were these people anyway?

Now you can discover a wealth of cool and astonishing facts about the Pilgrims. Did you know that they made the long ocean journey in a cramped boat, or that the friendly Indians helped the Pilgrims survive that first winter? Would you have liked being a child in Plymouth? You wouldn't have gone to school, but just read about the chores you would have done!

Kenneth C. Davis delivers another outstanding picture book in the Don't Know Much About series. With his trademark question-and-answer format and S. D. Schindler's detailed artwork, you'll get an insider's view of the Pilgrims' life. It wasn't easy, but they helped make America what it is today. Now that is something to give thanks for!

Synopsis:

Delectable details about the Pilgrims are served up in this terrific Thanksgiving treat. Stuffing his traditional question-and-answer format with intriguing sidebars and quizzes about daily life in Plymouth, Davis also provides little-known facts about the Pilgrims' Mayflower voyage, relations with Indians, and original turkey feast. Full-color illustrations.
