Editorial Reviews for “The Pilgrim Adventure” Thank you, Susan Kilbride, for the fantastic opportunity to teach my children about their rich heritage and to keep them excited about learning more. -By Tammy Wollner, author of Keeping His Way Pure My 11 year old son, who has no desire to learn from a textbook about the pilgrims and memorize boring dates, eagerly read “The Pilgrim Adventure.” A living book, “The Pilgrim Adventure” combines real facts with some fiction to make the subject more appealing. -Tina from Newbeehomeschooler I finally found time to sit down to read Our America….The Pilgrim Adventure by Susan Kilbride and ended up reading it in two sittings, it flows so smoothly. What a perfect way to share history with children — and adults! I learned a few things here, too! -Gail Nagasako, author of Homeschooling Why and How The historical appeal makes this book a perfect addition to your studies on American history. My children were able to retain so much more information in this format than a simple text. I am never a fan of entertainment over education, but this book does not fall into that. The book is fun and contains fantasy, yet the historical accuracy and overall feel of the story give it the perfect blend of entertainment and education. -Richele McFarlin Susan knows what homeschoolers are looking for and delivers that in her books. -Heidi Johnson of Homeschool-how-to I love how Finn and Ginny become a part of the story and participate in the unfolding of the pilgrim’s experiences when they arrive at Plymouth. I found myself while reading it, forgetting that it was also educational! An especially nice fact about this book is that the author obviously knows her facts on the pilgrims and Mayflower.....She very effectively brings these people to life in an interesting way for the reader. -Joy of homeschoolliterature
