Fun little book that I'm not sure I ever would've purchased for myself At first glance, it's a little simple for kindergarten However, it comes with a charming author read along that is like nothing I've seen before Story is told and then retold with interactive words and motions My class always loves this little story and it engages them over and over again. cute The illustrations don't always match the text Early on the fish and whales draw attention away from the Mayflower and text on that page Love the rhyme and rhythm Shares very few details of the first Thanksgiving, but it's a fun read. The soft color palette and almost mangalike illustrations give a different look to the familiar story The rhyming verse make it perfect for a holiday read for k4. The author says a lot with few words It did take me a second read before I spotted Plymouth Rock, which is even smaller than actual size My twoandahalf year old nephew liked the story well enough to listen to it four times on Thanksgiving evening Of course, we did not read the actual words, we let the pictures tell us the story He's never seen big ships, the ocean, waves, Indians or the types of clothing pictured in the story We were able to find foods in the pictures that matched the foods on our plates (This does perpetuate some myths, but I like myths, and these are correctable.) Very short but fun for young children The rhymes are simple and only make about four lines each segment What really wins are the illustrations several had me cracking up and they were ridiculously adorable What's especially funny is a wellanimated turkey graces several of the pages, but then when the last shows the Thanksgiving dinner with a cooked Turkey well, uh oh.but then I see the same animated Turkey sitting in at the table with the rest of the crowd 00I have no thoughts or idea on the CD Portion.
