Overview

In this alphabet picture book, author Laura Crawford brings the Pilgrims� story to light by balancing classic Thanksgiving themes with clever lessons about the Pilgrims� trials and triumphs. Noting American ideals like �F is for freedom� alongside the realities of Pilgrim life, such as �H is for hardship,� as well as teaching geography (�A is for Atlantic Ocean�), cultural facts (�W is for Wampanoag tribe�), and historical names (�M is for Miles Standish�), this book is a wonderful vocabulary builder and a fun way to pass the Pilgrims� story on to another generation.
