"Across the Atlantic Ocean, a lone ship on a vast sea. Ablaze with new hope, all praying to be free." From the lives of our early settlers, who established the foundations for American freedoms and ideals, to today's celebrations, P is for Pilgrim colorfully examines the history and lore of Thanksgiving. Educators will find the inclusion of the Core Democratic Values of valuable use for the classroom while kids of all ages will enjoy the bright, engaging illustrations and fascinating sidebar text. "Zippy bands zigzagging down the street, zebras trotting, zeppelin-like balloons afloat. Flags flying, banners waving, a Thanksgiving Day Parade playing a happy note." Lecturer and book reviewer Carol Crane is widely recognized by many schools and educators for her expertise in children's literature. She has written several state books for Sleeping Bear Press including Texas ( L is for Lone Star ) and South Carolina ( P is for Palmetto ). She travels extensively and speaks at state reading conventions across the United States. Helle Urban, a Parker, Colorado resident, has been an illustrator for over 20 years. She earned her bachelor of fine arts in illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Helle has illustrated numerous children's books, painted portraits of families, and was a background artist in the animation industry.

My children and I have already enjoyed several state books in Sleeping Bear Press's alphabet series, and this book is no exception. The illustrations are eye-catching, and the wealth of information about the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving is appropriate across many grade levels. P is for Pilgrim is an excellent addition to any study of Thanksgiving.
Publishers Weekly, 2003-09-22 The picture book P Is for Pilgrim: A Thanksgiving Alphabet by Carol Crane, illus. by Helle Urban, offers informative ABCs in quatrain form: A is for the Atlantic Ocean, traveled by those "praying to be free"; B stands for the Bill of Rights, inspired in part by the Mayflower Contract; C for the "cache of Corn" taken by Pilgrims "from the Indian field." The short history lessons that supplement each quatrain, however, suggest use in a classroom setting more than as a child's personal reading. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
