Nearly half of the fifty-two Pilgrims at the First Thanksgiving were children age sixteen and younger. What was it like being part of the historic harvest festival that inspired our modern holiday?

Based on the Thanksgiving Address of the Iroquois people, the words in this read-aloud book reflect the Native American tradition of greeting the world each morning by giving thanks to all living things.
