The Pilgrim Adventure Book Review!By Upatdawn
Those are the words of author, AND home educator, Susan Kilbride.
Her book, The Pilgrim Adventure is the first in the Our America series which features brother and sister, Finn and Ginny, as they go back in time to search for their missing parents.
Early America aboard the Mayflower!
The author skillfully integrates modern day characters seamlessly into the story. These characters interact in a plot that is based on actual accounts written by the pilgrims themselves! Thoughtfully researched and artfully written, The Pilgrim Adventure is a work of historical fiction in the vein of The Magic Treehouse BUT WITHOUT the wizardry.
From the struggles of survival aboard the ship, to establishing the Plymouth colony and friendly relationships with local Indian tribes, the reader feels that they are more than spectators. My 13 and 11 year old also read this book and they remarked that they felt a part of the adventure as well!
This is a fabulous start to a series that I predict will be a real winner!
The next book, due to release this summer, has a little something to do with King Philip's War. That's all I can say --- Our whole family cannot wait for the release of this next book!
Check out Susan Kilbride's website for fun, free activities for the Pilgrim Adventure AND her fabulous book on science unit studies.
I received a copy of The Pilgrim Adventure free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
