    1. This gets an "amazing" because my kids were on the edge of the couch listening to this. They spent three nights in a row talking to their dad about it at dinner and it still comes up every now and then. Even the 5-yr-old enjoyed it and has been able to talk about it.This is just a brief overview of the Pilgrims. It covers a bit while in England/Holland then more on the Mayflower itself and then the New World. It took us 3 days to read it. It covers "all the basics" you'd need to know. It doesn't [...]

    2. This is my favorite book to show right before Thanksgiving. It answers questions you didn't even know you had. How many children were on the Mayflower? What did they eat and drink? Did any of them get into trouble? How long was the journey? Find out by reading this book!

    3. This book is full of wonderful, useful, interesting questions and answers and even pictures for the younger ones to look at. We are studying early American history this year in my homeschool. I am reading older "textbooks" to my 2 older elementary children but decided to read this one to my 8 year old / 3rd grader who has a much shorter attention span. I was impressed with how well this book summarized all that we learned (from other books) about the Mayflower and the Pilgrims first year in the [...]

    4. We've requested several more books from this series from the library. Too long for a single sit down read aloud, but full of accessible info about the Pilgrim voyage. A stayed up to read it through by himself.

    5. Wonderful book to read around Thanksgiving. We learned lots of new things and look forward to traveling to Provincetown, Massachusetts in the near future.

    6. This story was about the Pilgrims journey to America. It uses a question and answer format as it is writing about the trip. The story not only talks about the trip through the ocean, but it also discusses what happened once they got here. It talks about the hard reality that there was lots of illness and many people died, but it did not make this a big emphasis. It uses the real names and shows a diagram of the set-up of the Mayflower. It talks about what it would have been like to be a kid duri [...]

    7. A couple of years ago, I wouldn't have bothered to review this. I might have picked it up off of the kids' reading stack, paged through it, maybe even enjoyed it, but then would put it down without further ado. These days, however, since I'm reading all sorts of kids' books and posting my reviews on GoodReads, I'm more inclined to put in my two-cents worth. Anyway, this is a nice little illustrated book that gives kids a peek into what life might have been like for a Pilgrim boy or girl aboard t [...]

    8. This book offers a lot of answers to myriad questions regarding the Pilgrims and the Mayflower voyage to present-day Massachusetts. The book is presented in a question and answer format and all of the questions are briefly answered so that the details aren't too overwhelming or boring. The narrative is accompanied by numerous colorful illustrations which really help to explain the life of the settlers. We really enjoyed reading this book together; with our ancestral connection to the Mayflower a [...]

    9. My daughter, age 10, really like the question/answer format of these books and I think she likes the cartoony illustrations too. The topics and flow of the book really seem to suit her (and probably many 8-12 year olds) informational gathering style. I am not comfortable that the information concerning the native tribes is well presented but it doesn't seem intentionally wrong. We have also read other, more recent books, on the Plymouth Colony that have helped to tell the story more completely. [...]

    10. In lively question-and-answer style, this fact-filled book answers all sorts of questions about the Pilgrims' journey on the Mayflower and their first year in America. Boys and girls will find out why the Pilgrims left England to live in America, what they took with them on board the Mayflower, and the hardships they endured. They'll learn what the Mayflower Compact was, how the Pilgrims made a peace treaty with the Indians, and how these brave settlers managed to survive in their new land. Age/ [...]

    11. 1st-4th This is a great book to help teach students about the Mayflower. The major questions students have are answered. It answers what the Mayflower is, who the Pilgrims are, why the Pilgrims left England and took this journey on the Mayflower. These are all answered through out a story of the Pilgrims journey on the Mayflower to the first year in America. The reader learns about this historical event through the fun illustrations and text.Have your students explore the journey on the Mayflowe [...]

    12. As a fifth grade teacher, this truly helped my students understand the entirety of what life was like for the Pilgrims that sailed to The New World on The Mayflower. My students got a taste of what Pilgrims went through on an everyday basis. The book is written as a question-answer style, which was extremely helpful when students began asking questions about the historical time period. The information was also extremely accurate and did not try to hide anything from readers; both good things and [...]

    13. This book is a book that could be easily spread out to multiple days before Thanksgiving. It can be also a be a pre-writing activity book for students to ask questions, as the book is written with those questions in mind, and tries so answer all of them. I like how the beginning of the book starts with a cutout of the boat, and it explains what that view point means. This book will build a lot of content knowledge and connect with prior background knowledge on the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgi [...]

    14. This book is one that I once owned, purchased with my dad's hard earned money from a school book order. I read it repeatedly, really got Dad's money's worth out of it.What I most remember about this book is the horrid food that the Pilgrims ate while on the Mayflower. I believe hardtack was mentioned.I don't remember if the book touched on death at all. Did people die on the Mayflower? I can't remember and I no longer have this book. Maybe my sis has my old copy. I need to ask her about all thos [...]

    15. This was the book that was overgreeable, condamicamently and caustiousinal. I learned that Thanksgiving first lasted for three days, then the next years, it lasted one. The pilgrams went to someplace called Cape Cod, then went back, Then they went to Plymouth Rock and then Plymouth after they went to Cape Cod. Another thing I learned about them was that there was lots of church books on the Mayflower, and church I always miss. I would recommend this book to people who don't know about the Mayflo [...]

    16. This was a book reccomended by my mother. We're going to Boston this fall, so I'm trying to learn some history. This book talks about how the Mayflower came to America. There were a few things that surprised me, for example, like that the pilgrims did not celebrate Christmas. One thing that I thought was interesting was that many people that came on the Mayflower were seperatists, or people who wanted there own religions. This is a very good book for people who like history.

    17. This is part of a fun series about the United States. These books are written as answers to questions, each question in the table of contents, so a child can easily look it up without having to read through the entire book if they did not want. The illustrations are cute, even though the answers to some of the questions are a little grim.

    18. Great book of 80 pages packed of information about the Mayflower and what pilgrims were like. This book will help children understand what it was like to live through this time. This book could used as a source for a project and it has great illustrations to go along with the text. Awesome for a classroom.

    19. This is a good book to teach children about what the Mayflower was and how it impacted the history of our country. It would be fun to read around Thanksgiving or at any time of the year. The colorful pictures along with the question answer style would make it very interactive for children as they learned about this topic.

    20. This book answer many frequently asked questions about the Mayflower. It had a lot of great general information that could spark students interest about a social studies unit. I personal liked the picture of the Mayflower, and how they broke down the parts of the boat. It would be fun for students to create their own Mayflower ship, and write a story about the voyage.

    21. Very helpful, useful resource for upper elementary/middle school students. Gives information on the Mayflower, the types of people on board -passengers and crew, the voyage, the hardshipsexcellent overview.

    22. A very well illustrated book that helps to introduce the Mayflower to students. It is a fun way to lead into this topic area and it allows students to visualize what they are learning about. This book is very informational and perfect for the upper elementary classroom.

    23. We enjoyed reading and imagining what it would have been like to sail on the mayflower and live in the new world that first winter with pretty much nothing in the way of food, shelter and comforts. We all agree it would be TERRIBLE!

    24. This was a most delightful book I read with my children to learn about Thanksgiving! My children were fascinated and we learned things about the pilgrims that I had never even learned before! We thoroughly enjoyed reading this for our home school!

    25. Notes:Maybe these books appeal to some kids but they don' fit with our unschooling ways -- too much like encyclopedias and the q&a thing gets annoying.
