Sarah Morton's Day - By Kate Waters

This story is a superb photo-reinactment of Pilgrim life at Plymouth Plantation! Watch as Sarah makes hasty pudding, feeds the chickens, pounds spices, learns to write, and goes about her daily life.  With costumes, props, and even a sprinkling of Old English, this book is bound to make history come alive for any young student! An excellent resource to use with kindergarten through the second grade, during the Thanksgiving season.

My Goose Betsy - By Trudi Braun

What a goose looks like, what sounds it makes, where it lives, how it cares for its eggs, how the eggs hatch . . . I've rarely seen a better children's book on animal life! This is science in story form! Readers will find large, soft illustrations on every page, and even "A Few More Goose Facts" at the end, for older children.
