One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims

Sing to the Traditional Tune, ONE LITTLE TWO LITTLE
Words Adapted by B.G. Hennessy
Illustrated by Lynne Cravath

Thoughts from Emily about this illustrated song:
ONE LITTLE TWO LITTLE THREE LITTLE PILGRIMS has grown on me over time.  I decided this year to definitely make it one of the “must sing” Thanksgiving songs.  It’s a fun and familiar tune to celebrate the special American Thanksgiving holiday, but there is a surprising lot of information in the adapted lyrics that can spur discussion topics including about Pilgrims and why they came to settle this land, relationships with Native Americans and how they helped the Pilgrims, and the ways in which people survived in the 17th century wilderness of North America.

The last few pages of the book contain information about the situations depicted in the pictures that can spur further discussion and inspire the desire to learn more.
