During this adventure the cousins learn a lot about the Pilgrims and all they went through coming to America in order to worship God freely. They also learn about the troubles they faced with the Indians. Your children will enjoy reading about familiar characters such as Captain Myles Standish, Governor William Bradford and Squanto. My daughter was thoroughly excited at the mention of Squanto since she had heard of him before albeit on Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving video. She was also trying to guess where Hugh would show up next. These stories are great! We've have really enjoyed reading each book and are looking forward to reading the next one in the series--Secret of the Prince's Tomb (book 7).
***I checked this book out from my local library to read for the Tyndale Summer Reading Program. All opinions are my own.
