Jack and Annie travel back to 1621 on the first Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims ask them to help prepare, but they don't know how to do things the Pilgrim way. They meet a Native American, Squanto, who helps them through their journey. I liked this book for two reasons. First, the illustrations helped enhance the story. Since this is a chapter book, there aren't pictures on every page. The pages that do have pictures often involve a key event or detail; this lets the reader know when there is a main idea and helps him/her better visualize it. Second, the characters are believable. When Jack and Annie meet the Pilgrims, there are clear differences in the way the Pilgrims speak. For instance, "'Good day!' the friendly-looking man said. 'Who art thou?'" The big idea is that you can do anything that you put your mind to. ( )

This book is about a brother and sister who travel through their imagination back to the original thanksgiving. This is a fantastic series, I would read them all the time when I was younger! They were my favorite. I would use this in second through fourth grade to talk about the history of thanksgiving and culture. ( )

A really good read the story focuses on not giving up trying new things, the structure of the story makes the book easy for readers to follow and understand. the story is fiction but also include realistic elements that makes the next relatable to readers. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, the main message was to never give up trying something new. I believe that the plot was well set up and seemed to follow a logical order. The author made sure that the main characters were not perfect at helping the Pilgrims because they did not know how to do it the pilgrim way. I believe that is very important because it adds a sense of reality into the story. Another part of the story I really enjoyed were the characters, I had never read a Magic Tree House book before this one and Ms. Osborne made her characters incredibly relatable and loveable. The reader never wants to put the book down and is drawn in by the two main characters and how they react to their adventures. ( )
