The story of the first Thanksgiving is very popular with children and adults alike. Now, with this little board book in hand, adults can share this uplifting story with the toddlers in their lives

Using simple sentences and with charming illustrations, Nancy Davis describes how the Mayflower brought the Pilgrims “to a land that’s free.” She tells her readers how the native peoples taught the newcomers how to survive in North America, and how the Pilgrims and the native peoples came together to celebrate “the first Thanksgiving day.”

Little children are sure to enjoy opening the flaps that are found on every double page spread throughout this small board book.
