I really enjoyed this story and would use it for a read aloud around Thanksgiving. What I really admired was how the reader finds out that young people have special skills and are important in society too. This little pilgrim was too young to do many of the things other pilgrims were doing, but she wasn't too young to make a friend.

I admit I read this many years ago to my daughter when she was a pre-schooler and we were looking for fun Thanksgiving picture books. It's a really sweet, mild story with cute illustrations.

This is a really cute story about a little Pilgrim named Mini. She wants to help the adults out so bad but she keeps getting told that she is too little to help and becomes sad. Eventually she realizes that she is not too little to make a new friend when she meets one while picking berries. This is a great book to use during Thanksgiving time because young children can probably relate to this story. It can be used to teach the lesson that we should be thankful for friends and that we can always ...more

As I continue my Kindergarten theme, I really enjoyed reading this book! I love the idea that we can tell the story of thanksgiving from the littlest pilgrims point of view! Little Mini just wanted to help so bad and was so sad that she was pushed aside (as so many of my students can relate to). It has a happy ending though when she finds a confident in the littlest indian (native american)

Mini is the littlest of all the Pilgrims. She's too little to help out with anything in her village, but she's not too little to make a friend. She meets a little native American girl in the forest and becomes her friend.

* Making friends, building community, everyone pitching in, working together, being kind to friends

Our final story is about a little girl who wanted to help but was told by everyone she is too small. Finally she picks some berries and meets a woodland girl with whom to share them. She found she was not to little to make a friend.

Being kind is a friendly way to behave.

Mini is the littlest pilgrim in her village. Everyone thinks that she is too little to help them. However, she is not too small to make a friend. This book would be a good book to show kids that you are never too small to make a friend.

This story could be used for Pre-K or Kindergarten. The story is easy to follow and could be used for a theme on Pilgrims. The Littlest Pilgrim also teaches a lesson to children.

29 months - A read most little girls can relate too, being told you're too little to help. But, you're never too little to make a new friend.
