Our America Series is a new series of books for kids designed to help them learn more about American History. I’ve found that a powerful way to teach history is by telling the story of the people involved instead of just having the kids memorize facts and dates. Each book in the series will cover a different point in our country’s history, starting with the Pilgrims….
The Pilgrim Adventure
Finn & Ginny’s parents are lost back in time, and the two young twins have decided to go back to early America to find them. Their search takes the twins to the Mayflower where they discover that the Pilgrims had far more adventures than they had ever realized.
This first book in the Our America series is designed to teach the real story of the Pilgrims in such a fun way that the reader won’t even realize that it’s educational. The Pilgrim Adventure is based on actual accounts written by the Pilgrims themselves, and kids who read this book will find that by the end of the story they may know more about the Pilgrim’s adventures than their parents do. Ages 10 and up.
