Format: Paperback
This book, although a resource used in many classrooms across the United States, has been overused. This book has an improper representation of the history of Squanto's life. Research has not been done at all in the development of this book.The way in which the author portrays Squanto is very poor as well. This book was written in 1954, a time in which the idea of what an Indian was supposed to be was stereotypical. Squanto is portrayed as unable to speak proper English even after 9 years in England. I would not recommend that this book be used in the classroom unless it is to address the stereotypical view of Indians. There are more recent publications that are much more suitable for reading.
For a book with accurate historical information and reference items in the back of the book, see Joseph Bruchac's Squanto's Journey.
If I could give a rating of zero, I would.

Clyde Robert Bulla does an excellent job with bringing the content of the book down to the readers level. This book is emotional as well as informational which is probably why younger children love it.

I liked this book because it was a very interesting story about Squanto and his journeys with the English in the New World and in England. I found it sad the way he was put on display and mistreated by Captain Weymouth. In the end it was wonderful that he found a home in the New World with the pilgrims.

I read this to my six year old and she was completely captivated. Everything is explained clearly and in language that she could easily understand. I found the book very enjoyable too and would highly recommend it.

This book was first copyrighted in 1954 and it is still an excellent introduction for young readers. Published by Scholastic Books, it doesn't have a recommended grade level, but I suggest it be used for 2nd-4th grade reading levels. This is not only a good introductory book for social studies, but it can be used to improve reading skills and interest in reading. Although the tempo is a staccato-type presentation, that works well for 2nd and 3rd graders.

The story is heart-wrenching, but has a hopeful tone throughout as Squanto seeks to gain knowledge and then impart his skills in the end. Highly recommended! Squanto, Friend Of The Pilgrims (Scholastic Biography)

Both of my children (2nd and 4th grade) have enjoyed this title. My daughter zipped right through it and really enjoyed it. The story was written in an engaging fashion, and the children are able to retell even the small details.

Purchased as part of the Mother of Divine Grace curriculum.

I love this little book and it can be easily read by a second grader. Is it totally factual? Of course not, Squanto is talking in the book. It does, however, give a young child a picture of Squanto's life.
