      It s so easy to think of immigration as only something that happened in the past, but Molly s Pilgrim reminds us in a sweet and simple way that America is still welcoming those looking for freedom This was an enjoyable story that would make a good read aloud to primary age children at Thanksgiving time.

      A classic book to read at Thanksgiving time A short read that tells about an immigrant Jewish Russian girl trying to fit into her new school with girls who are unkind to her She is assigned to make a Pilgrim doll but her mother does the assignment and makes a very unique doll In the end, the mother teaches everyone a lesson and everyone learns that we are all Pilgrims in some way.

      Reading Rainbow Watch the Stars Come Out.We cringe at reading books that depict such mean language the girls teasing predjudice but in this case I went for it Bea was very inspired by the doll making and embarked on a new obsession for a while.

      Starting my preparation for Battle of the Books with this one This is a nice story about a young Russian Jew struggling to fit into her new school in America This was a short, easy read that would be a good introduction to chapter books for a young reader.

      Loved this story A great addition to my Thanksgiving book collection I read it aloud for my 7 yr old and she immediately wanted to read it again A great book for turning the hearts of the children to their ancestors and learning about them Also great for teaching kindness and respect to our fellow travelers in life We had a great discussion after reading this story I loved the black and white drawings.

    15. Amanda on said:

      This has been one of my favorites since I was a little girl I love the story of Molly and her mother It s a great story for Thanksgiving and beyond I use it in my classroom today and discuss Thanksgiving and empathy.

      Was a good companion book for Thanksgiving and to go with WishTree that I am currently reading to my students Sort of the same theme.

      What a darling little chapter book Wish all Americans could take the message from this book and incorporate it in all their dealings with immigrants in the US.

    21. Charlotte on said:

      This was a sweet book especially great if you are looking for a book about kids that don t fit in and how to help them But I liked it all on its own.

    22. Anna Murdock on said:

      I read this to all my kids this morning It is really short, but a really nice message.

    23. Kristina on said:

      I really, really want to give this 4 stars, but I just can t The message is timely and important that Pilgrims didn t just come to this country in 1620 However, and I realize this is probably a by product of being published in 1983, I don t love that the bully isn t really dealt with If we want to use this as a read aloud, Battle of the Books title, or display title, then the issue of bullying needs to be addressed in some way, too That message is just as, if not , important in today s climate, [...]
