Homeschooling: Why and How review of Our America — Pilgrim Adventure
Homeschooling: Why and How review
I finally found time to sit down to read Our America….The Pilgrim Adventure by Susan Kilbride and ended up reading it in two sittings, it flows so smoothly. What a perfect way to share history with children — and adults! I learned a few things here, too! The premise of time travel is fitting for the age group you are addressing and the main characters are entirely real. I found it gratifying that she dispelled some of the myths about those times, such as the idea that the Pilgrims found an untouched wilderness on the eastern shores of America. I expect other adventures will follow and I’m sure readers will enjoy continuing along on the journeys of Finn and Ginny.
