We struggled to find a book about Thanksgiving that was historically accurate while also supporting our Christian faith. Most modern childrens books about Thanksgiving ignore the central role their faith played in the migration of the Puritans to the New World.

This book accurately descibes the religious divisions in England that drove the Seperatists (later called Pilgrims) to leave. Throughout the book, children see the Puritans through the lens of their faith. It's not overt and peachy, but Wisegard makes it clear that this was a group of people who were truly seeking to follow God's will. That is what we teach our own children to do, so we found it very refreshing.

Note: the previous reviewer is incorrect about the use of the term "Pilgrim". It was a contemporary description; William Bradford used it to describe his group upon leaving Holland to board the Mayflower.

ISBN 0385073127 - With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it seemed like a good time to go through some of the books on the shelves here that are related to the holiday. The Plymouth Thanksgiving turned out to be a surprise for a couple of reasons.

Not allowed to worship as they'd like, a group of people known as Pilgrims leave England to settle in Holland. While there, they hear about a New Land and think that it might be a good place to settle, so they return to England to prepare for their journey. The group faces danger at sea and, once they find land, various threats before they find a suitable place to settle. Soon, they make friends among the Indians and one of them, named Squanto, is left behind with the Pilgrims. He teaches them much about their new home and, when a plentiful harvest time comes, the Pilgrims have a celebration and invite the Indians to join them.

Author/illustrator Leonard Weisgard did an okay job, in 1967, when the book was first published. Weisgard says that "In England over 300 years ago there lived some people called Pilgrims". This is a weird inaccuracy, since it was their pilgrimage to America that earned them the name of "pilgrims" and so they clearly wouldn't have been called pilgrims while they were in England. Weisgard mentions them sailing "From England out of Plymouth Harbor westward toward the New World..." and landing, eventually, at Plymouth Harbor, which strikes me a detail worth explaining (two different harbors, in two different countries, with the same name). Last, for a book that is mostly accurate, if vague, the fact that the author writes "Chief Massasoit... were all to come... to share a Thanksgiving feast." is absurd, since the holiday wasn't a holiday and it certainly wasn't called Thanksgiving until many years later.

The 3rd graders I shared this with kept interested because of nice illustrations and few words each page, and the words are all exactly what happened, carefully researched, taken from journals of the day.
