The author says a lot with few words. It did take me a second read before I spotted Plymouth Rock, which is even smaller than actual size.

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.

The illustrations don't always match the text. Early on the fish and whales draw attention away from the Mayflower and text on that page. Love the rhyme and rhythm. Shares very few details of the first Thanksgiving, but it's a fun read.

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.
