Squanto—Friend of the Pilgrims
This short chapter book, based on the true story of Squanto, is written at a level for younger readers, and yet it totally engaged me as an adult. I personally feel the white men of that era were represented accurately: there were great and kind white men, but there were also some white men who were cruel. Be aware that there are sad parts of the book, although the author does a great job of showing Squanto’s enduring spirit. Children will learn much about the historical time period.
