Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In 1620 a document was signed that would ultimately lead to the writing of the United States Constitution. This document was the Mayflower Compact which "established the tradition of elected representatives serving in government" and was the beginning of official government in the United States. As part of the "We the People" series, this title provides an excellent, up-to-date, resource valuable to the study of the forming of our country. It is well written and filled with interesting information spanning the journey on the Mayflower, the first years at Plymouth, and the fair and just governorship of John Bradford. This book also dispels some myths regarding Thanksgiving, the daily lives of the pilgrims and their relationship with local Native tribes. Squanto, Massasoit and Metacomet are the Native American tribes mentioned individually. A wide variety of artwork along with the words of the Mayflower Compact and a list of names of the signers helps bring the story to life and creates a cohesive, easy-to-read book. Also included are a timeline, glossary, important people and want-to-know-more lists, and "Did You Know?" This is an excellent resource for any classroom study or library. 2005, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 12.
