This is the Mayflower, sturdy and strong,
Her sails skim the skies as she journeys along.
These are the Pilgrims, down on their knees,
seasick and frightened on rough, rolling seas.
Why I think you should read it:
Author Diane Z Shore weaves a wonderful lyrical story about searching for a new home, the adversity in struggling to survive that first winter ashore, the cautious friendships begun between Pilgrim and the Native Americans already living there, and the joyous feast of Thanksgiving when all come together to celebrate the bountiful harvest. THIS IS THE FEAST is a fabulous retelling of the historical voyage of Pilgrims coming to America for the first time and would be a great addition to any library!
