Jake's Review of If You Were at the First Thanksgiving by Anne Kamma

If You Were at the First Thanksgivingby Anne Kamma, Illustrated by Bert Dodson
Reviewed by Jake McCarthy

In the year of 1620, a little sailing ship set off on a journey to America. When the pilgrims arrive, they build their houses very quickly because winter would come soon. After the winter, only fifty two people survived, but one day, an Indian, Squanto, walked into their village and asid, "Welcome, Englishmen!" The pilgrims were surprised. Squanto helped them and taught them to grow corn.

Then the pilgrims made a peace treaty with the Indians. Subsequently, the pilgrims invited the Indians over to a feast. Then and there, Thanksgiving began.

I like this book because of all the interesting facts.

I recommend this book for 5 to 9 year olds.
