Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
How often do we think of the effort that goes into protecting and commemorating the important artifacts of American history? In 1620 the Mayflower with 104 Pilgrims landed in what is now Plymouth, Massachusetts. Although none of the Pilgrims wrote of the rock as the specific location of their landing, it was later identified as such. A wharf was build around the rock and for many years it was forgotten. But in 1769, Forefathers Day was celebrated, and would be from then on. The story of the Pilgrims and the rock was brought up again. Believe it or not, the rock is divided up, painted on, broken into pieces and put back together again before it is finally gets a monument capable of portraying its significance in American history. 1998 (orig.

My kids and I checked this one out from the library and decided that we needed it for our personal library. I never knew all the things that happened with the "Plymouth rock" and this book recounts the facts of the tale in a humorous voice. After each event it dryly gives commentary as to the rock's reaction to the goings on. We enjoyed it thoroughly!
