    The author says a lot with few words. It did take me a second read before I spotted Plymouth Rock, which is even smaller than actual size. My two-and-a-half year old nephew liked the story well enough to listen to it four times on Thanksgiving evening. Of course, we did not read the actual words, we let the pictures tell us the story.

    Very short but fun for young children. The rhymes are simple and only make about four lines each segment.

    The story is written as a poem and the illustrations have lots to look at on each page. A great way to tell the story of Plymouth Rock.
