I came across a few of the books in this series at our local used book store during the summer and thought they might be a nice addition to our history studies this year.
We LOVE this book!
It's written for ages 9-12 and is full of historical information. And its actually an interesting read! You find yourself really rooting for the main characters, John and Sarah Smythe, as they make the trip to North America on board the Mayflower. Historic figures are brought to 'life'...William Bradford, William Brewster, John Alden, and Captain Jones.
I don't know about you, but anything that provides another 'facet' of learning gets me excited. We have enjoyed this book as a read aloud as we study this period of American history. Did I mention the kids love hearing it? As much as I have enjoyed reading it out loud to them.
There are several books in this series. I'm tempted to buy some more!
