A good choice for a Thanksgiving picture book. The text is factually based, but the author adds realistic details in order to flesh out the story and help children understand the Thanksgiving story. The art is colorful and detailed, with several full page spreads (rather like appendices) full of facts that will especially appeal to an older elementary audience trying to put the story in the larger context of civilization. One spread details events in history at this time. Another spread explains the major Indian people and tribes at the time. Two pages are devoted to the pilgrims, and another two are devoted to the "strangers." Also includes an excellent bibliography for further study.

This book is perfect for children who want to understand a bit more about the Pilgrims and their voyage to America. This book has good illustrations and is very informative.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689802080, Paperback)

When Bartholemew, Remember, and Mary Allerton and their parents first step down from the Mayflower after sixty days at sea, they never dream that life in the New World will be so hard. Many in their Plymouth colony won't make it through the winter, and the colony's first harvest is possible only with the help of two friends, Samoset and Squanto.

Richly detailed paintings show how the pilgrims lived after landing at Plymouth, through the dark winter and into the busy days of spring, summer, and fall. Culminating with the excitement of the original Thanksgiving feast, Three Young Pilgrims makes history come alive.

Mary, Remember, and Bartholomew are among the pilgrims who survive the harsh early years in America and see New Plymouth grow into a prosperous colony.
