Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6–Told in a conversational tone, the narrative draws readers into the realities of the Pilgrims arduous but monumental voyage. Students witness illnesses, storms at sea, and the unknown wilderness of the settlers new home. Sprinkled with lighthearted but important advice–Handy hint: Try to survive and raise lots of children–your ancestors will be grateful!–this book portrays the significant implications of the Pilgrims landing in America. The author also provides the necessary historical background, explaining why they left their homeland. As in previous titles, cartoon art adds humor and engages readers. A diagram of the ships layout provides perspective and small, illustrated maps are also an aid.–Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA

I love this entire series--it is really fun. I wouldn't use it as stand-alone to teach history, but to complement history curriculum. Read it to younger kids (5 or older) or older kids can read on their own and it should hold their interest.

I teach third grade, and we shared this book during a read-aloud. My students really enjoyed the illustrations as well as the concise explanation of what happened during this period. After the read-aloud I put the book on display. They are still looking at it--and the read-aloud was two weeks ago!

comical illustrations are supported by historical events. The whole series (we have most of them) are interesting for adults and children alike.
