Recommended for: grades 2-4, Thanksgiving
Read in November, 2011 , read count: 4

Historically accurate, interesting picture book of the perilous journey in 1620. The descriptions of the crowded, smelly, leaking ship, the seasickness and the barren landscape they found when they arrive adds cred to the Pilgrims courage and determination. Soft and somber illustrations perfectly match the tone of the story. A Thanksgiving must.
