A New Look at
This excellent book takes a look at Thanksgiving from both
perspectives: Native American and Pilgrim, combining known
facts with historical research and reinforcing the idea that
history is not just one version of anything.
Pictures rule in this book. Kids see how the Pilgrims lived,
worked, and prayed. Along the way, they find out that life
back then was different in some ways but exactly the same in
other ways. Good fun!
