Discovered this little pearl at the library and I was deeply touched as I read it to my children. This is based on the historic account of Plimoth Plantation and Mourt's relation. Despite all the hardships, even losing half their population to plague, the pilgrims still chose to give thanks to God for every specific blessing. (This really humbled me, as I was feeling grumpy over having a sinus infection at the time we opened the book). I liked the black-and-white photos and also the preface and notes, which detail relationships between the pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians.
