This book beautifully tells of all the hardships, the joy, and the faith of the Pilgrims. There are so many trite little history stories for young people available that are devoid of the facts of the hardships and how they were faced with faith and courage. I have kept this book on my shelf even after we finished our years of home schooling. The Mayflower Pilgrims is worth re-reading as an adult.
This is a good book, to start off my daughter said it was boring, But she kept reading, and now is enjoying things going on.
