Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathryn Erskine
Part of the "Graphic Library" series, this title gives a great sense of what it was like to arrive on the Mayflower, including having to live on a freezing ship during the winter months until shelters were built, as the Pilgrims were ill-equipped and ill-prepared for the conditions they found. Because of native peoples like Samoset and Tesquantum, known as Squanto, the Pilgrims learned how to plant crops, fish, hunt, and take care of themselves. The thankful Pilgrims invited local tribes to a harvest feast to celebrate their bounty of food and the fact that their settlement was growing stronger after initial disease and starvation. At the end of the easy-to-read comic-style book, additional short facts about the Pilgrims are presented, as well as a glossary and list of further sources. This graphic depiction of the Pilgrims' harvest festival is an excellent resource for reluctant readers in elementary, middle, and upper school.
