Good, But not great Good for social studies Not good for younger grades, has a lot of text on each page Images are not that great Tells about how pilgrims lived in colonial times. I listened to this on audiobook. Although in picture book format, the text, written in first person as if spoken by one of the Pilgrims, is a bit difficult for younger readers The glossary in the back is helpful for understanding archaic terms This book might work better with older kids The Pilgrims desire for freedom of religion and their worship of God is apparent throughout. AR 5.6 In A Text That Mirrors Their Language And Thoughts, Marcia Sewall Has Masterfully Recreated The Coming Of The Pilgrims To The New World, And The Daily Flow Of Their Days During The First Years In The Colony They Called Plimoth Aye, Governor Bradford Calls Us Pilgrims We Are English And England Was Our HomeBut Our Lives Were Ruled By King James, And For Many Years It Seemed As Though Our Very Hearts Were In Prison In England September, , Our Lives Changed We Were Seventy Menfolk And Womenfolk, Thirty Two Good Children, A Handful Of Cocks And Hens, And Two Dogs, Gathered Together On A Dock In Plymouth, England, Ready To Set Sail For America In A Small Ship Called The MayflowerAfter An Abundance Of Prayers And Tears We Made Farewells At Dockside And Boarded Our Small Ship Our Voyage Across The Atlantic Ocean Began With A Prosperous Wind, But The Sea Soon Became Sharp And Violent And Storms Howled About Us When The Pilgrims Set Out For America, They Brought With Them A Dream For The Future Sickness, Hardship, And Heartache Stood In The Way Of That Dream But The Pilgrims Worked Hard, Keeping Their Dream Close To Their Hearts, Until They Were Finally Able To Make It Come True This is a nonfiction title, full of information related to their early life in Plymouth from house building, to clothing, and the work of women and children It is not a book about why the pilgrims choose to leave England, move to Holland and eventually settle the new world I did like the fact there was a glossary of the terms used by the pilgrims, for example pottage means stew.However, I object to the fact that the term Mayflower Compact was never referenced in the text or glossary or a footnote The text merely says the men agreed upon a code of conduct and the freeman signed it I do realize since this title is dedicated to the Pilgrim Village interpreters that the author is trying to stay true to the times, language and terms of the Pilgrims, however, the Mayflower Compact deserves mention within this title by name The title is detailed enough to include the fact that one of the women gave birth to a stillborn baby so a mention of the Mayflower Compact could have occurred somewhere. The pilgrims of Plimoth by Sewall Marcia Story of the crossing and landing at Plimoth, MA and how they were able to survive with help from the Indians.Hard land and they were able to cut trees and build houses Section tells of what chores the men have also one from women s perspective and one from children and their work.Glossary of words used.I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD Braille Audio Reading Device. This book won the Boston Globe Award The Pilgrims of Plimoth is a book the talks about how the pilgrims settle into America This book contains great information However, I did not enjoy reading this book because the texts were too long, and the illustrations are not great I recommend this book for high school level because this book can be hard to understand for little children. This was a nice, well illustrated look at life as a Pilgrim It highlighted the different roles that men, women, and children had.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Pilgrims of Plimoth (Aladdin Picture Books) book, this is one of the most wanted Marcia Sewall author readers around the world.
