Young Samuel Eaton (a historical character) is looking forward to his first chance to help his father bring in the crops. He finds the work incredibly hard, and the coarse grain raises bad blisters on his hands. But he perseveres, and at the end of the day when his father tells him "you did a man's work today, Samuel," we feel his pride.
Masterfully written, beautifully photographed, this is a gem in every way.
Writing the same review for the other two in this trilogy. Excellent all!
The texts and pictures were well researched and presented. Plymouth Plantation and the reenactors there provide an authentic setting. Homes, clothing, work and play of children during this period are acurately shown. These books should be in every school library.
Samuel, like Sarah, has a step-parent -- both of them lost a parent in the difficult early times of the settlement. Unlike Sarah, however, who worries about her stepfather's acceptance, Samuel seems very secure in his new family's love. He contributes enthusiastically to his household, plays kindly with his young stepsister, and shares a sweet connection with his stepmother. This book, probably more than any of the others, gives the reader a sense of the difficult, often desperate work required for the Pilgrims to survive in their strange new home. He also greets two Native friends while out gathering food, reminding us how much the Pilgrims owed to the Native people who welcomed them. It's another great addition to a Thanksgiving read-aloud.
