This is a simple but honest children's history of the settlers of Plymouth Colony and the Wampanoag people and what really happened on that first Thanksgiving. There's a fair amount of myth-busting as well as using surviving records to determine actual events. There's also a short history of how Thanksgiving became an American holiday and a detailed chapter about visiting Plimoth Plantation (very useful to my son and I since we're taking a field trip there next month).

After their first harvest in 1621, the Pilgrims at Plymouth shared a three-day feast with their Native American neighbors. Of course, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag didn’t know it at the time, but they were making history, celebrating what would become a national holiday.
