The book tells the difficult journey of those traveling to the New World on the Mayflower with beautiful photographs and historical details. There are many interesting footnotes on the pages to help students understand what life was like in the 1620s. Personal documents from the voyage are shared as well as documents from the first colonists. Although there are few references to the affect English colonization had on the Wampanoag, in all fairness, this is the story of the colonists coming to Plimouth. The use of historical reenactment to tell the story of the colonists makes the story appealing to students. They can actually "see" what the colonists and sailors. This book would make a great addition to an elementary school classroom. At the back of the book there is a short Bibliography and list of events in chronological order. I was surprised the book did not include additional links for teachers. ( )

This book has a table of contents and an idex in the back of the book. Additional information for the teacher is also included in the back of the book. It's an informative resource that takes a new look at the voyage of the Mayflower.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 079226276X, Paperback)

Plimoth Plantation and the National Geographic Society come together to tell the true story behind the legendary voyage of the Mayflower. A meticulously researched work, Mayflower 1620 offers children a compelling, fresh account of this much-told story.

Vibrant photography of a rare reenactment using the Mayflower II leads readers imaginatively into the narrative. The vivid and informative text explores the story behind the exhibits at the living-history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Primary sources record what the voyagers wore, what they ate, and telling details of their journey. First-person accounts reveal the hopes and dreams they carried. Readers share in the long hours at sea, and in the dangers faced after landfall. Extensive end notes, a map, a detailed chronology, and a bibliography round out the full story of the Mayflower.

Readers experience a new look at this seminal historical event through the eyes of those who now regularly inhabit the world of the pilgrims—the actors who interpret the Pilgrim Voyage. This eye-opening book teaches children the value of closely reexamining everything we think we know.
