The Pilgrims' First Thanksgiving by Ann McGovern TW2609

The Pilgrims’ First Thanksgiving by Ann McGovern, 6th Scholastic paperback printing, TW2609, 1974, 64 pages. Illustrated by Joe Lasker.

DESCRIPTION: The story of the Pilgrim’s journey on the Mayflower, their settlement in Plymouth, help from the local Indians, and the celebration we have come to know as Thanksgiving; grateful sharing and reflection on good fortune and friends. Although it follows the traditional mythology of peaceful migration, and ignores the detriment to the indigenous population, it is well written and nicely illustrated.


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
