William Bradford—Pilgrim Boy

By Bradford Smith
Level 4

The engaging style of writing will pull even young readers into the story of William Bradford, who becomes a Separatist and travels with the Pilgrims to the New World where he becomes governor of Plymouth Plantation. Most of the story focuses on his childhood. This book is a wonderful tool to make history come alive for children. However, because it is written for a lower level reader, it might not be as interesting for children over 12 years old.
