Synopsis

"Across the Atlantic Ocean, a lone ship on a vast sea. Ablaze with new hope, all praying to be free." From the lives of our early settlers, who established the foundations for American freedoms and ideals, to today's celebrations, P is for Pilgrim colorfully examines the history and lore of Thanksgiving. Educators will find the inclusion of the Core Democratic Values of valuable use for the classroom while kids of all ages will enjoy the bright, engaging illustrations and fascinating sidebar text. "Zippy bands zigzagging down the street, zebras trotting, zeppelin-like balloons afloat. Flags flying, banners waving, a Thanksgiving Day Parade playing a happy note."Lecturer and book reviewer Carol Crane is widely recognized by many schools and educators for her expertise in children's literature. She has written several state books for Sleeping Bear Press including Texas (L is for Lone Star) and South Carolina (P is for Palmetto).

C for the ""cache of Corn"" taken by Pilgrims ""from the Indian field."" The short history lessons that supplement each quatrain, however, suggest use in a classroom setting more than as a child's personal reading.
