Plymouth Rocks!: The Stone-Cold Truth

We rated this book:


“What happened to the rock famously known as Plymouth Rock? Well, the rock is here to tell you the stone-cold truth. Well, at least what he thinks is the truth. The trusty researcher is here to make sure we get the history straight.

There is a lot of text for a picture book. Especially in relation to the researcher, I felt it was a bit overwhelming for a kid unless they were older. The illustrations were good. I enjoyed the style. I kind of felt they were overpowered by the amount of text on the pages, though.

I think if the child is older and likes history this book would be great. It would be a good book for a research project. I don’t think a kid would find it particularly fun to read otherwise. This book would be great for use in a unit on the truth about Thanksgiving and what really happened. I would love to see it encouraging kids to do their own research.

I would recommend this book for kids aged seven to nine.”
