Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Well-chosen facts, "set like jewels into the text," and "splendid" pictures mark this picture book as "the finest of nonfiction," said PW. Ages 7-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2 Up Written as a personal account, Sewall's book not only conveys the spirit and conviction of the Pilgrim experience, but also provides a bounty of historical information and domestic detail about the settlement at Plimoth and the people who survived those arduous first seasons in America. Sewall's extensive research is evident in her text and in the rich, simple oil paintings that reveal so much about the Pilgrims. Her illustrations, somewhat reflective of the American primitive style in the use of flat, thick strokes, are never static. Every scene is charged with energy and movement, depicting the flow of human exchange and relationships. Sewall also makes effective use of double-page space, creating wide-angle scenes, as in a bleak view of winter seen as through a screen of snow, or the overview of the Thanksgiving celebration. By adhering to traditional language and vocabulary (for which there is a glossary at the back), Sewall has captured the dignity of the Pilgrim voice, and lends a quiet, steady rhythm and intensity to the text as the collective "we" is repeated over and over, becoming a litany of events, customs, practices, and beliefs. Sewall's book is educational in the best sense: it is eloquent, evocative, factual, and lovely to behold. This is not a text for very young children (Alice Dalgliesh's The Thanksgiving Story Atheneum, 1954, also from a personal perspective, is more suitable), but even prereaders will respond to the stories so fully developed in these pictures.

Format: Paperback
It would seem the previous reviewer was reading a bit too hastily, or simply did not understand what she was reading...? The author describes the "strangers" among them as having made the trip for monetary reasons alone, unlike the pilgrims themselves, who came in order to worship freely. Seems like a heck of an intense review, to be made in error like that. A little caution, please, before leaving one star and a scathing report next time? Sheesh.

Format: Paperback
Written in the first person, this book is history with personality. This is fun to read out loud as a family -- the book is packed with "we". This is also fun for acting out scenes as part of a history lesson on Plymouth colony.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was quite impressed with this little book. This is our first year homeschooling and I wanted to give my children an in depth picture of how America became a nation. I like how the book was divided up into different sections- one about a day in the life of Pilgrim men, one for women, one for children etc. I also like that it was written as if they were telling us about their days, using words we are not accustomed to hearing, and they have a glossary of terms in the back of the book. The artwork I felt was perfect for the story. The girls enjoyed this book so much that they would be let down when I didn't keep reading, as we spread its reading over two weeks. My older daughter has also gotten the book down to read on her own. This book, combined with a few others, have really given my children the concept of life in the 1600s, and why America is so special. Awesome!
