In Celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ Landing! Winner of the Editor’s Choice Award.
“There is no doubt that Mrs. Carlson’s delightful style and chapter approach will give the young readers wonderful dreams and images to carry with them through life. She captures the combination of anxiety, surprise, friendship, cooperation, and joy, all wrapped up in the persona of a stowaway mouse. And as she suggests to the reader at the end, the stage is set for them to follow suit with their own story that might encompass those same feelings. Beautifully done….the entire piece invites the reader into an enchanting view of history. Any parent, big sibling, or friend would enjoy reading it to a child. And I do hope that Mrs. Carlson has other moments from history waiting to be penned. We all could benefit from her approach.”
-Don Stewart, Educator
“An imaginative tale of the Pilgrim’s arrival in Plymouth, told with historical references from William Bradford’s journal and from the perspective of a mouse! Shows how the Pilgrims cooperated for the common good and how the Indigenous people aided their survival. Great for homeschoolers, parents and teachers who are teaching early American history to elementary age children. Beautiful illustrations range from historical art to a child’s charming renditions.”
-Julie, parent and art historian5.0 out of 5 stars A boatload of wonderful history packed into one little book
Carlson has packed this book with fabulous history, great details and original source material. It delights and informs readers of all ages. The illustrations, both historic and contemporary, round out the tale told by one observant and brave little mouse!
