From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6–Told in a conversational tone, the narrative draws readers into the realities of the Pilgrims arduous but monumental voyage. Students witness illnesses, storms at sea, and the unknown wilderness of the settlers new home. Sprinkled with lighthearted but important advice–Handy hint: Try to survive and raise lots of children–your ancestors will be grateful!–this book portrays the significant implications of the Pilgrims landing in America. The author also provides the necessary historical background, explaining why they left their homeland. As in previous titles, cartoon art adds humor and engages readers. A diagram of the ships layout provides perspective and small, illustrated maps are also an aid.–Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA
