This is one of the best Thanksgiving books I have read. I got it for my 5 year old daughter to learn from (we homeschool) and then I ended up reading it to my entire family (my parents, grandparents, brothers and sister in laws, niece) after we ate our Thanksgiving dinner this year. Everyone was fascinated by some of the things we learned from it that we had not known before and it was nice for all of us to sit around the table after we ate and enjoy it together.

Wow. This book is packed with great information on the real Thanksgiving. Not the fluffy version they teach in school, but the actual facts about how things happened. There is so much great information in here. I think it should be added to everyone's Thanksgiving book reading list and all libraries (including home ones). We are doing a study in our homeschool of Thanksgiving and the reasons for people leaving England so long ago. I think it's something so important for children to know and study.

We read this book with our kids the week before Thanksgiving. It was very easy to read, had great illustrations and contained a lot of details about that time period - not just about the first Thanksgiving. They loved it! We have already recommended this book to others.

This may be the best children's book about Thanksgiving I have come across. Though it is minimally illustrated, (But very nicely), the author does a terrific job in not just unwavering any and all questions about the real Thanksgiving, but also does an excellent job explaining the various answers. And they are all composed in a way that most youngin's will well understand, and learn something from. And one last thing that come by too often in children's books. This one is a bargain for the present price they are asking for it. You won't find a better more entertaining book for both kids and adults for the price... Highly recommended... : )

I am very pleased with my purchase. I gave several of these great little books to the children at church. I told them to skip over the part where it states that it was not a religious Holiday back then. The reason being that the Settlers were very religious and the Indians were too in their own way. So anything they did, they did mindful of God's provision, including this feast. I base my opinion on other books I have read on the traditions of both the Settlers and the Indians that would differ with the conclusion that it wasn't a religious feast. As you read on, you will see that this little book actually agrees with my stated opinion and that short particular statement really should have been worded differently or left out completely.

Well researched and interesting for both kids and adults. A great read for the Thanksgiving season and beyond. Illustrations are well done and the book answers may questions that kids might ask. Who knew that the Pilgrims didn't wear undergarments?

My husband teaches second through seventh grade Special Needs students - this book was very informative for them without demeaning them.
