Each November, Americans have the opportunity to celebrate a nationwide
holiday for every one, the feast of Thanksgiving. At this time
it is good to remember the origins of this celebration. Turkeys,
Pilgrims and Indian Corn by Edna Barth is a good resource
for the whole family. The author provides chapters on the three
centuries of Thanksgiving,
the history of the Pilgrims in England, Holland, the Pilgrim leaders,
the Mayflower and its
voyage, Pilgrim clothes, animals, houses, children and mothers
as well as chapters about
Plymouth Rock, Indian neighbors, pumpkins, turkeys, cranberries,
Indian corn and harves festivals of the world. In addition, there
are puzzle and craft activities on the front and back inside covers
of the book. Ursula Arndt’s black and white illustrations decorate
the book well
and help make the book accessible to the whole family.
Life in the Pilgrim Colony 1636 by Paul Erickson combines
the history of the Pilgrims and Plymouth Colony with the daily
life of a typical Pilgrim family. This book is wonderfully illustrated
with photographs of artifacts, tools, animals, food, and buildings
of the Pilgrims’ time. There are also maps and some painting reproductions.
Besides sections on the world of the Pilgrims, the New World,
New Plymouth: Town and Colony and Government and Religion there
are sections on: Making and Mending, Cooking and Eating, Getting
Dressed, Women’s Work, Men’s Work, Health and Medicine, Trade
and Defense, and The Children’s Day among others.
These two books are just a couple of the many Thanksgiving and
other holiday related books available at Logos. So come visit
