Format: Hardcover
My 2 and 4 year old girls love this book. A must buy if you want to pass on the true history of the first Thanksgiving. The adventure begins as the pilgrams set sail for Plymoth Rock and continues through the long cold winter. It ends with the sharing of Thanksgiving blessings. The illustrations are marvelous. Each time you turn the page you find a lovely detail you didn't notice the last time. My 2 year old didn't want me to turn the page she was so excited by the pictures. My girls loved it so much I read it at Sunday School and to my amazement 14 four year olds sat still and listened to the entire book. Don't pass this one up!

We were disappointed with this book. In the kindle version the illustrations are garbled. Redowloading doesn't fix anything the story stops in the middle at page 6 of 32. I should have bought the print version instead of the kindle version.

My husband's family descended from William Brewster on the Mayflower. His Mother Verna Perry was the 10th generation. I
wrote a book on Verna Perry's 100th birthday. It lists ALL the generations from William Brewster to my grandchildren.
I purchased about 40 copies of "Off to Plymouth Rock" which is all I could find to send to the entire family. They all have
copies of the book I wrote.

A perfect book to read to the family as you gather for Thanksgiving, Off to Plymouth Rock will appeal to ages 4 to 8 as well as the young at heart. Shared in rhyme to engage young minds, Mackall tells the story of the first Thanksgiving without talking down to her young audience.
The story begins with the pilgrims' flight from their European homeland;
Pilgrims flee!
Sail the sea,
Knowing there's no guarantee.
Leaving, grieving,
Still believing...
Off to Plymouth Rock!
The story continues by telling the tale of their perilous voyage, the terrifying winter after their first arrival, and the compassion of Massasoit, the Indian chief, who moved by their suffering helped the pilgrims to survive. Off to Plymouth Rock describes Squanto teaching the pilgrims about native crops such as corn and the joy of the first harvest. As it concludes with the first Thanksgiving we are reminded how different the first Thanksgiving was from our gatherings and yet we can see the seed with which they began.
Humble living,
First Thanksgiving-
Here at Plymouth Rock.
The illustrations are also particularly worth noting. Gene Barretta engages the reader with his drawings of two young girls throughout the story. Fear, hope, and wonder can be seen in their faces as their lives begin to intertwine. The final illustration of the book shows the girls playing together under the table near the feet of immigrant pilgrims and native Americans. One sees it is not only a look back but also a prayer for our future - that one day we may all get along and welcome one another to the table.
The edition I reviewed included a read-a-long "Activity" CD which was a disappointment, but the book is charming and will be a welcome addition to any Thanksgiving gathering. So, what are you waiting for, let's be on our way,
Off to Plymouth Rock!

This book was recommended as a good story for young children about the Pilgrims' journey to the New World. It is a nice story, but I wish I had saved my money and bought the real book instead of the Kindle edition. The Kindle edition is poorly formatted, and the illustrations are pretty small. If you're interested in this story for your children, don't waste money on the Kindle edition!
