I loved how this book really engages the reader and brings them in to the story, coming from Squanto's perspective. I also loved how accurate the story is to history! This is a book every child in America should own, yet tragically is not a story so often shared.
Eric Metaxas' book with its beautiful illustrations by Shannon Stirnweis bring this little-known piece of history to light in a very effective way. I love Metaxas' comparison with the story of Joseph. Brings a whole new and very important perspective on Thanksgiving and God's sovereignty. My 9-year old grandson was touched by the story.
This book shares the story of Squanto, more than just his interaction with the Pilgrims, but his kidnapping, transportation to Spain, living with the monks, living in England, and then back to America.
