Fun little book that I'm not sure I ever would've purchased for myself. At first glance, it's a little simple for kindergarten. However, it comes with a charming author read along that is like nothing I've seen before. Story is told and then retold with interactive words and motions. My class always loves this little story and it engages them over and over again.
Fun pictures. Engaging rhyme. Minor complaint I remember at time: Don't believe the Pilgrims knew exactly where they were heading to. Book implies that they did; believe it was named at the journey's end. Oh well - not so bad; having it there makes the reader glad.
The soft color palette and almost manga-like illustrations give a different look to the familiar story The rhyming verse make it perfect for a holiday read for k-4.
The story is written as a poem and the illustrations have lots to look at on each page. A great way to tell the story of Plymouth Rock.
Maybe the author meant off to Plymouth? I know the rock is tiny, but there is so illustration of it AND THAT IS WEIRD.

A Thanksgiving book short enough for storytime!
