Depicts the story of the first Thanksgiving, three days of feasting during which the Pilgrims celebrated their survival of their first year at Plymouth and their thanks for the help of their neighbors, the Indians.
This is Thanksgiving, a time to remember the friendships and freedoms we all share together.
When the Pilgrims embarked on their legendary Mayflower voyage in 1620, they couldn't predict what lay ahead of them. In search of religious freedom and a new life, the settlers faced hardships including harsh storms, illness, and unfamiliar terrain. Thanks to their natural perseverance and the help of their neighbor Indians, the Pilgrims survived their first year. And when the harvest the next fall was plentiful, the Pilgrims and the Indians joined together in a three-day celebration, the first Thanksgiving.
Diane Z. Shore's lyrical, rhythmic verse and Megan Lloyd's lively, joyful illustrations bring the Pilgrims' harrowing experience to life and demonstrate the strong bonds for which we give thanks every year.
