Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of the Pilgrims (Pictureback(R))?
History includes misinformation and bias Nov 20, 2006
Thanksgiving is a harvest festival; a time to show appreciation for all we have. Teaching our children a biased viewpoint of the First Thanksgiving empowers racism to continue in this country. Popular renditions of the First Thanksgiving (such as this book) give children the mistaken impression that the relationship between American Indians and English colonists was one of mutual help, respect and friendship. This popular belief does not take into account the way in which the colonists persecuted the American Indians, sold them into slavery and drove them from their homes. Not to mention the epidemic diseases colonists brought to America, genocide and erosion of tribal soverreignty. Get to know American Indian history through their stories, captured by Gerald McDermott or other authors at another time of year rather than celebrating the dreadful.
Kids don't even know they're learning history Nov 6, 2004
I have been perusing children's books for historical events and people. This is a nice introduction to the Mayflower and the history of Thanksgiving. It gives enough detail that very young children will actually learn some history, yet it is short and to the point to keep their interest. The only fault is that I could not get a hardcover edition.
I like this one better than The Pilgrims' First Thanksgiving by Ann McGovern.
