This delightful and interesting account of Pilgrims is written especially for children. It explores the religious oppression of the Pilgrims in England, their escape to Holland and eventual crossing to America on the Mayflower, and their early days in New England. Based on historical fact, the stories are filled with details of everyday life and vivid characterization of Pilgrim families as they struggle to maintain their faith in the New World. The Brewster children and other Pilgrim boys and girls are the center of interest. This is a wonderful book to listen to in the weeks before Thanksgiving.

    " My children are really understanding the beginnings of the pilgrims. Great family discussions about what we would sacrifice to keep our faith and worship freely. My children are earning a great respect for these people and what they went through. "

    " This book is a collection of stories of pilgrims. My favorite is the story of the Christmas candle. A widow was scared of the Indians because they kept asking for hard cider and threatened her. They came during a Christmas party and a Christmas candle exploded. It scared them away. "
