    A rhyming tale telling of the Pilgrims fleeing to North America and the events that took place after their arrival which led to the first celebration of Thanksgiving

    The author says a lot with few words It did take me a second read before I spotted Plymouth Rock which is even smaller than actual size My two and a half year old nephew liked the story well enough to listen to it four times on Thanksgiving evening Of course we did not read the actual words we let the pictures tell us the story He's never seen big ships the ocean waves Indians or the types of clothing pictured in the story We were able to find foods in the pictures that matched the foods on our plates This does perpetuate some myths but I like myths and these are correctable

    Very short but fun for young children The rhymes are simple and only make about four lines each segment What really wins are the illustrations several had me cracking up and they were ridiculously adorable What's especially funny is a well animated turkey graces several of the pages but then when the last shows the Thanksgiving dinner with a cooked Turkey well uh ohbut then I see the same animated Turkey sitting in at the table with the rest of the crowd 00I have no thoughts or idea on the CD Portion

    This is the story of how the first Pilgrims reached America and thrived thereAlong the way the Native Americans are shown as they help the Pilgrims settle downThe book culminates with the celebration of the Pilgrims' first Thanksgiving I wish such harmony could be found in history as well Alas everybody knows that the Natives were exterminated But this is a book for children there is no trace of those terrible events hereThe text is a poem lovely Illustrations by Gene BarrettaFor kindergartners and 1st graders

  5. Jeani Jeani says:

    Good but very simplistic view of the journey and result of the Pilgrims' journey; geared toward K 1st ? grades Nice rhyming

    Fun little book that I'm not sure I ever would've purchased for myself At first glance it's a little simple for kindergarten However it comes with a charming author read along that is like nothing I've seen before Story is told and then retold with interactive words and motions My class always loves this little story and it engages them over and over again

  8. Jessica Jessica says:

    The illustrations don't always match the text Early on the fish and whales draw attention away from the Mayflower and text on that page Love the rhyme and rhythm Shares very few details of the first Thanksgiving but it's a fun read

  9. Marcia Marcia says:

    The soft color palette and almost manga like illustrations give a different look to the familiar story The rhyming verse make it perfect for a holiday read for k 4

  10. Kathryn Kathryn says:

    The story is written as a poem and the illustrations have lots to look at on each page A great way to tell the story of Plymouth Rock
