Celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing, 1620-2020!
This book offers a fresh and engaging perspective on one of the most pivotal events in America’s history. It provides young readers with a deeper understanding of how the Pilgrims’ strength, tenacity and faith-filled perseverance not only led them to success in their own pursuit of a better life but also shaped the core values of America. Through delightful narration, vibrant illustrations and excerpts from real historical documents, children can form a deeper appreciation of how the Pilgrims’ sacrifices paved the way to a nation built on the spirit of freedom and fearlessness. The use of passages from the journal of William Bradford ignites a love of history early on, demonstrates the value of journal-keeping, and encourages young readers to research their unique family histories and document their findings as they embark on unique adventures of their own.
The voyage of the Mayflower and it's inhabitants comes to life in a way younger readers/listeners can connect to...and will wish they could meet 'William Bradford' themselves.
