CHAPTER 1

Thanksgiving! It's time for Thanksgiving!

Each year in November we like to remember ...

the Pilgrims, who came such a long time ago, to build and to live here, to work and to grow.

They hadn't much food and the winter was cold. The Pilgrims got sick—both the young and the old.

But Native Americans knew what to do. The Pilgrims were taught many things that were new.

They grew corn and pumpkins to last the whole year. They also caught fish, hunted turkey and deer.

The people were thankful for food they had grown ...

so they held a great feast with plenty to eat. There was cornbread and nuts, berries and meat.

Then neighbors and Pilgrims gathered to share the Thanksgiving meal they all had prepared.

I enjoyed reading this to my little boy. I want him to have books that help explain why we do the things we do. This book did a great job of that!!
