This is the story of Pocahontas, after John Smith, as seen through the eyes of her pet kitten and is directed toward 3rd to 5th grade students. Not only is it a wonderful way to interest children in American history, it is a good story and will leave the young reader wanting more adventures with Pepper and her friends.
The book opens a window into the Powhatan Indian culture, giving the student a sense of how they lived. After reading this book Pocahontas seems more like a real person than just a chapter in history. At the back are more historical facts and definitions of terms used. I highly recommend this book to students, parents and teachers.
In Pepper and Pocahontas, we find the very tiny Pepper being bundled up and taken by a Native American, Pepper’s adventures begin under the tutelage of a large tom cat called, Otter.
Melissa Gill teaches us about Chief Powhatan and learn that he had united thirty tribes of Algonquian speakers into one confederacy. We meet the Powhatan people and learn about their language, Algonquin. Then we are introduced to the legendary Pocahontas.
The author recreates her historical characters really well in her gentle narrative style. She brings them to life with succinct descriptive passages. I felt like I was there grinding corn, preparing the meat and living the life of these intriguing people. I was touched by their story and, in particular, Pochahontas’, story, and yet, delighted with the part Pepper and Otter played.
Young readers will be enthralled with this wonderful story and they will no doubt love the fact that they are learning about some of the centrally important people who shaped the history of early America.
I highly recommend this wonderful story. Along with the other books in the series, I think it’s a must to have on every child’s bookshelf (or tablet). Do yourself a favour and grab a copy by clicking the links below.
The last few pages are replete with facts about the people, places and customs described in the story, and make for very interesting reading. At the same time, the book is much more than a recounting of history. With cats playing a central role in the story, the book is also very much about the pains of separation and joy of reunions in Pepper’s life. Although I felt the ending was a bit hurried, the book is a fine example of fluid storytelling and vivid descriptions.
