" This book fits our social studies curriculum very well. " said.

" Refreshing to read something that wasn’t from the conservative christian viewpoint. " said.

" My third-grade son and I read this book on Thanksgiving. He really liked it because it was from the perspective of a Native American. It may not be a perfect book, but it did help my son understand the non-European viewpoint of Thanksgiving. " said.

" A biographical look at Squanto- before the Mayflower and after (the normal Thanksgiving story). I appreciate that it was factual and from a different perspective. It is a bit dense and less of a story due to the biographical nature, but I know Kai will like it (age 6) because he’s always asking if the stories we read are actually right. " said.

" Beautifully written and illustrated life of Squanto. The speaker is the man himself; the book is full of authentic idioms and makes you feel like you're sitting at the table in Plymouth with him, listening to him tell his story. A great Thanksgiving readaloud for home or school (or both at once). Bruchac always bats a thousand, as does Shed. " said.

" I read this picture book because I saw it just after I read Geraldine Brooks's novel Caleb's Crossing which takes place in the same area with the same tribe a bit later in the century. I thought the story was told well and it is informative, but it is very sad material at times. The deaths of family and slavery are told in a very matter-of-fact manner. I adored the illustrations and the way he worked for peace. " said.

" Wasn't extremely interesting for students, but has information that can be pulled out for comprehension. Images are water colors, but dull for 1st grade. I think this would be good for 3rd grade. " said.

" I really loved the beautiful illustrations. This was a fascinating look at Squanto's life...he definitely had some difficult and unfair things occur to him but he was brave, intelligent, and resourceful. This allowed him to help the Wampanoag people and the English settlers. I appreciated the author's note and felt this was a nice introduction to Squanto and his contributions. " said.
