    This picture book tells the incredible true story of Squanto, an English-speaking Native American. The book begins in 1608, when twelve-year-old Squanto is captured by the British. Squanto is sold into slavery in Spain, but a group of monks rescue him. The kind monks teach him English and about God. Squanto misses his family, so years later, he begins the long journey home to North America. Squanto is devastated when he learns that no one in his tribe survived a disease outbreak. But God has a plan for Squanto. When the Pilgrims arrive he acts as a liaison between the Native Americans and the Pilgrims, and the groups work together to produce a bountiful harvest, which brings the first Thanksgiving.

    Now here is some great American history: a vivid story of the Separatists and the first year in the New World! With a commitment to truth, as best it can be determined – avoiding both traditional myths and political correctness – this author tells the story in an interesting and engaging style. When necessary to fill in some information gaps, he scrupulously resorts to qualifiers such as "probably" or "may have." It may be this commitment to historical accuracy that makes the book so fascinating. As we read along, we're engaging in the process of discovery, led by the author. Because of its importance to the overall story, the complex history of the British throne prior to 1620 is also told in simple and easy-to-understand terms. The author documents many of his sources at the back of the book. This is a fascinating read. 291 pgs, pb ~ Caryl

    This is the story of the landing of the Pilgrims, life in the New World and preparations for the first Thanksgiving, told in a pleasant-to-read poetry form. Other than a historical note in the frontispiece, it's light on details, but full of wonderful illustrations that tell the story as well as the words do. Throughout, the story captures the essence of the Pilgrims' daily life as well as their attitude of gratefulness to God. Too often these days it seems that the Pilgrims are misunderstood, so this book comes as a breath of fresh air. I can see your little ones asking for this one to be read to them multiple times during the Thanksgiving season. ~30 pgs, pb. – Chad
