SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS: 

The Thanksgiving Story "is the only really distinguished book we have on that holiday. Miss Dalgliesh has told the Pilgrim story simply from the point of view of the Hopkins family whose little Oceanus was born on the Mayflower; and Miss Sewell has made wonderful full-color pictures. A beautiful book."--The Horn Book.
 
MY REVIEW: 


I read this book with my children. It won the Caldecott Honor for 1955.

I think this is my favourite version of the first American Thanksgiving that is in short chapter format. The language was suitable for even my four-year old to understand, and there is just enough information presented without being overwhelming.

The illustrations by Sewell enhance the story.

MY RATING: 4 stars! We really enjoyed it!!
