The photographs capture my imagination, and the text gives just enough detail to make me want to explore this important point of time in American history. Highly recommended for kids of any age. Like me!

This is a beautiful recent book about the Pilgrims and the 1620 Mayflower voyage. It is unique not only in its up to date perspective, but also because it uses photographs as illustrations. In 2001, using the Mayflower II, National Geographic and Plimoth Plantation sponsored a voyage from Plymouth to Boston. Scenes were re-created using costumed actors, and these photographs form the scenes shown in this book. The book also allows a sensitive depiction of the native people who had already lived ...more
A nice book detailing the events of the voyage and the beginnings of Plimoth Plantation. Great pictures.

National Geographic presents the history of the Pilgrim's voyage from photos they took from a similar journey abroad the Mayflower II (which can actually be toured at Plymouth Rock). I found the book to be mostly historically accurate (slightly biased) and contained a good amount of information. I appreciated the photographs depicting what the ship and tasks abroad it would have looked like. Check this one out!

Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports tha
I really do not like reading books like this aloud. But...
This is a fact-filled and up-to-date informational text about the voyage on the Mayflower. Photos of the Mayflower replica and Pilgrim reenacters from Plymouth Plantation sucked my kids right in. A found it fascinating but too challenging to read on his own. Great for shared reading if you have the patience and a fact loving child. Great non-fiction text and resource for upper elementary students.

Mayflower 1620: A New Look at a Pilgrim Voyage

It is a good general information book about the Mayflower, with help from National Geographic Society. It is not an in depth treatise on the Mayflower but a good start, especially for those 1st learning about it.

Incorporates the newest findings about the voyage to the New World.
good kid's book, but also has interesting info on the real "Pilgrims", debunking some of the mythology about the passengers and purpose of this voyage. Also, my nieces are in the photos.
