Overview

Ten little Pilgrims and ten little Wampanoag boys and girls are getting ready for the harvest feast. In colonial Plymouth, the young Pilgrims hunt ducks and geese and dig up turnips and carrots. In a nearby village, the Wampanoag children dig for clams, fish for cod, and gather nuts and berries. Finally, it's time for the meal. Turkey, cornbread, cranberry stuffing, pumpkin, and Indian pudding are all on the menu-yum! First, everyone gives thanks, and then it's time to eat and celebrate. The simple, rhythmic text and autumn-colored illustrations are just right for sharing the history and fun of Thanksgiving with young children.

"With little available on this subject for very young listeners, this attractive book should be a welcome addition." (Booklist)

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims is a delightful children¿s book for the very young. B.G. Hennessy¿s writing is clear-cut, and doesn¿t overreach, as many Thanksgiving books have a tendency to do. The story doesn¿t mention Thanksgiving, and according to the author notes, this work is not intended to represent the first Thanksgiving. Its purpose is to reflect the daily lives of the pilgrims and the Wampanoag children during the 1600¿s. There is no mention of death, or the hardships the pilgrims endured. This is a pleasant story recommended to the 3 to 8 crowd, but I say children 2 to 5 are more likely to appreciate it. The illustrations are equally delightful, and bursting with color. The text is rhythmic, and entertaining. If you don¿t mind singing the Thanksgiving version in the shower, or when drifting off to sleep, then check it out. It¿s an addictive read, but very effective, and worth a look.

I read this book for a project in school on stereotyping against Native Americans. I found this book cute, but not very informative at all. It showed the European settler (pilgrims) already knowing how to set traps that originated from the Natives. Also, it showed that women worked more but they all did an equal amount of work. I think B.G. Hennessy had good intentions for this book, but it was not very informative or accurate.
