E I Talamante, February 4, 2015 (view all comments by E I Talamante)
A good account about the first Thanksgiving, carefully balancing fact and story in a delicate blend that does not feel rushed or unlikely at any point. The story progresses quick enough that children don't feel bored or bogged down in details, and does not feel at any time like a history book. A good account for young children who are curious about those first few Pilgrims to Plymouth, or as a holiday tale to read before tucking into the turkey, just as a reminder of how much we have to be thankful for!

Nice, simple story with interesting (kid-friendly) details and good illustrations. It covers the journey to America on the Mayflower, the first year in Plymouth, and finishes with the First Thanksgiving. I just read this to a 2 and 3-year-old, and while they both listened attentively, it was a bit over the younger one's head. Nevertheless, I'd read it to them both again. Which is a pretty good recommendation in my book!
