She's now in 6th grade and still remembers many details of the book because they had that much of an impression on her.

We read this book as a part of our homeschool History curriculum this year.

We read this book as a part of our homeschool History curriculum this year. It was very informative and entertaining. My children (ages 6 and 8) absolutely loved it. We have the older version, and my kids didn't even mind the lack of color and the sparse illustrations. They begged me ,"One more chapter...please, Mom?!"

I would say the only thing I did not care for in this book was the way they portray the Indians. Other than Squanto, Samoset and Massasoit, all of the other Indians are viewed as 'savages' (and not very intelligent ones, at that.) In the last few chapters, they are even used as 'comic relief.' She also has them speaking the word 'Ugh' a lot...such as "Ugh! White squaw bring me cider!"

I thought that was a little unrealistic, and insulting as well.

The information on the Pilgrims is wonderful, and she really brought their journey alive.

If you can overlook the Indian parts, I would highly recommend this book.

My children and I loved reading about the Pilgrims. I was not educated about their lives like my children are. Thisbook is very informative and right on their levels. We read this when they were 5 and 9.

Format: Audio Cassette
Superbly written by Margaret Pumhrey and wonderfully narrated by Marguerite Gavin, Stories Of The Pilgrims is especially appropriate for young listeners with informed and entertaining accounts of how the Pilgrims left England to escape religious oppression in the native England, their escape to Holland, and their eventual, hazardous crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in the sailing ship Mayflower to arrive in America. Their story continues with descriptions of the early days of Pilgrim settlement in New England. Soundly founded on historical facts and records, the individual stories comprising this outstanding 4 hour, 30 minute, complete and unabridged audiobook presentation brings the listener the detailed, everyday life of those pioneering Pilgrims and their families as they struggled to survive while maintaining their faith in the New World.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the colorful descriptive language, but I'm disappointed that I can't find a book on the Pilgrims without serious historical inaccuracies.

One chapter says this: "A number of strangers came to John Robinson's meeting one morning. Some of these strangers were English people who had not come from Scrooby. Some were from France, where their king had treated them as cruelly as King James had treated the Pilgrims. Among them were Master and Mistress Mullens (sic), and their two children, Joseph and Priscilla ...."

William Mullins was a shoe merchant from Dorking, Surrey, and he was part of the London Adventurers merchants' group. There is no evidence that he ever set foot in Holland, and he was considered a "stranger" and not one of the "separatist" group.

I realize this book was about the "Pilgrims," meaning the groups of separatists on board, but the Pilgrims made up about one third of the passengers on the first Mayflower voyage. It would have been more fulfilling for me as a homeschooling parent to read a book about the Pilgrims with less fluff and more facts.

I borrowed this book to read it to my daughter when she was in second grade. She loved it. She's now in 6th grade and still remembers many details of the book because they had that much of an impression on her. You can imagine yourself being with these Pilgrims, waiting in the dark on the beach for the boat to arrive. Now that my son is 4, I wanted to make sure I had a copy of my own to read to him. This is definitely one to add to your personal library.

Loved using this book in our home school. Very informative. I wish there were illustrations, but we looked for and found pictures on line.
