Our America…The Pilgrim Adventure by Susan Kilbride
Susan Kilbride, homeschool mother and author, has done it again! Our America….The Pilgrim Adventure, is Susan’s first book in her new Our America series, and it is a wonderful way to involve kids of all ages in learning about early America.
If you are a homeschooler, this book is just for you. The storyline involves homeschooled twins, Finn and Ginny, in a search for their missing parents. This fantastic search lands the twins aboard the Mayflower and eventually the new land. Mystery and adventure keep your attention while historical facts are seamlessly woven into the story. The book is written in modern language so any reader will be able to easily read and understand, but this does not take away from the accurateness or historical feel of the story.
The back of the book includes wonderful historical notes, a bibliography, and few helpful websites if you want to expand your study. The back cover of the book includes a link to Susan’s website, Funtastic Unit Studies, which has a free companion unit study to this book.
I enjoyed the story very much, so much so that I finished it in one sitting! I can’t wait to see where Finn and Ginny look for their parents in the next book. You and your kids will love the addition of The Pilgrim Adventure in your Pilgrim unit studies, or just for reading enjoyment.
*This review is my opinion. I was not given any compensation other than a copy of the book.
