Adventures in Odyssey, Problems in Plymouth by Marianne Hering & Marshal Younger

Book Description:  The Imagination Station Adventures continue! Patrick and Beth’s next adventure leads them to Plymouth Plantation in 1621. There they meet William Bradford, Miles Standish, and Chief Massasoit, who are trying to establish peace between the Pilgrims and the Indians. Things are anything but peaceful, however, when a musket is stolen and the Pilgrims conclude the Indians are planning war. Only Patrick and Beth know who the real thief is—the traitor Hugh—and it’s up to the cousins to find him and stop him from causing trouble. When the cousins hear a gunshot during the first Thanksgiving feast, their worst fears are realized. They rush to the Mayflower and try to set right history, even as Hugh desperately tries to change it.

My Thoughts: While looking for a christian oriented book about Thanksgiving I found Problems in Plymouth.  This is a fiction history book for young readers but our whole family enjoyed this book.  We, though, love all things Adventures in Odyssey.  I guess one could say that we are Adventure in Odyssey fans! {smile}
There was much more to that first Thanksgiving than just turkey, Indians and Pilgrims as we found out in this fast paced read.  In fact, learning about William Bradford, Miles Standish and Chief Massasoit has never been more fun.  
Our family read this book first and then this book was read to a class of second and third graders at Children's Church and they loved it!  In fact, when I wanted to quit reading the children begged for one more chapter.  It's just that good!
