The Littlest Pilgrim is about a small girl named Mini. Mini wants to help her family but they all say she is too little to help. The girl eventually ventures off and finds berries. She then finds a girl just as small as she who is a Native-American Indian and they become friends. I think this is a simple and adorable book about being grateful and making friends. Though everyone around her tells her she's too small, she figures out that she is not too small to make friends. ( )

The littlest Pilgrim is the smallest in the town and wants to be as helpful as she can be. She just happens to be too small to be of any help to her family. She ends up meeting someone that she could help by being her friend, the littlest Indian.

I thought this was a great book and a fun read! It shoes the alliance between the Pilgrims and the Indians during that time period and is wonderful for the lower grades.

An activity that I would do with this book is a small book report. The main focus of the report would be sequencing the events in the book. ( )

This is a very cute book! I love that this book could be used for thanksgiving but also for children or students to learn about making friends and that it only takes a small gesture to make that happen. The illustrations are very colorful and bright. Overall, this is a great book and can be used for many teachable moments.

I am giving The Littlest Pilgrim three out of five stars. It was a nice and simple book. Mini is a pilgrim who just wants to help with the village chores. Everyone she tries to help tells her she is too small, and sends her to the next person to help. Eventually, Mini find a little Indian girl, and realizes she is not too little to do one thing; make a friend. This is a fairly easy trade book, that would be perfect for younger readers. This book seems like it tries to make the pilgrims and the Indians seem like they got along, when in reality it was that simple. I think this book is trying to sugarcoat the history of the United States for young children. Another way of reading this could be that when people are young, they do not see the outer differences of others; they just want to be friends with everyone. The illustrations in this book are full of fall colors, which is very fitting and gives the story a good vibe. I think a teacher could use this to introduce the history of Thanksgiving to students, but let them know that it was not exactly that simple. ( )

All the other villagers tell Mini that she is too small to help them with their chores, but she is not too small to be kind to another girl she meets.
