What to expect
This delightful and interesting account of Pilgrims is written especially for children. It explores the religious oppression of the Pilgrims in England, their escape to Holland and eventual crossing to America on the Mayflower, and their early days in New England. Based on historical fact, the stories are filled with details of everyday life and vivid characterization of Pilgrim families as they struggle to maintain their faith in the New World. The Brewster children and other Pilgrim boys and girls are the center of interest. This is a wonderful book to listen to in the weeks before Thanksgiving.
