KIRKUS REVIEW

In their third tale of time-travel with their grandmother, Liz and Lenny travel back in time to the Plymouth colony where they are able to work with the “planters” (later called Pilgrims) and enjoy the three-day harvest festival. Stanley’s facts are informative and instructive regarding the true circumstances of the colony and the work of the pilgrims. Speech balloons and detail-rich illustrations amplify the information aspect of this text, while giving readers much to come back to over and over again. Stanley’s and Berry’s research seems impeccable. Those who expect to see the pilgrims dressed in black and white may be surprised to see the red, earthy greens, browns, blues, violets, and grays—but those colors are historically authentic. A must for collections needing accurate and informative titles focusing on Thanksgiving. (author’s note) (Picture book. 4-10)
