Title: This Is The Feast
Author: Diane Z Shore
Illustrator: Megan Lloyd
Publisher: Harper Collins
Ages 4-8


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:

And so the tale begins of the Pilgrims' voyage to a land of unknown opportunities. I'm a sucker for great rhyming picture books and when you combine it with richly detailed artwork like the ones provided by Illustrator Megan Lloyd, readers can't help but want to go along on the journey with these brave men and women of long ago.

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!

Blurb: Addie comes from a long line of readers or "story catchers" as her family likes to call themselves. Every time Addie tries to catch a story on her own the wiggly words play tricks on her. She tries different ways to make those words sit still but it will take a little faith for Addie to become the next STORY CATCHER.
