If You Sailed on the Mayflower

We just pulled out our stash of Thanksgiving themed books. I bought this book for 5 year old Mackenzie when she was 3 and began to grow fascinated with tales of the Colonial Days and the American Revolution after our summer hikes and visits to Valley Forge National Park (just 2 miles from our home). It is fantastic. And it all has new meaning for me this season after learning last year about all my relatives who lived and settled in Plymouth – along with many who sailed on the Mayflower’s sister ship – the Speedwell, but had to turn back when it was leaking. Certainly, I’m a bit of a nerd and history buff and Kenzie seems to show a keen interest in academia and learning, but there is no denying the books from the "If You" series are fabulous. I also bought "If You Lived in Colonial Days". Other titles include If You Lived During the American Revolution, If You Traveled West in a Covered Wagon, etc. These books are very easy to quickly pick up and put down for a quick reading session before nap or bedtime as the books are broken down into simple questions and answers along with pictures. Examples include: What did you eat? What Happened when you were sick? What kind of clothes did you wear? What did your home look like? Did you have toys? These books are a super find and I highly recommend them. Classy Mommy Approved. For more information, click here. Price: $7
