Quick Overview:

The softcover edition of Mary’s First Thanksgiving, written by Kathy-jo Wargin and illustrated by Robert Papp, is the story of a modern pilgrim girl whose family came to this country for religious freedom. Her family faces hardships, but through the story of the first Thanksgiving, they soon recognize their blessings.

Sometimes all it takes is a little faith …

Most days, Mary loves her new home in America. But now it’s Thanksgiving time, and her family has little food. Mary begins to wish she could go back to Ireland. So Father tells Mary the story of how the Pilgrims struggled when they first came to America. There were times when they had barely enough food, just like their family. But five kernels of corn helped the Pilgrims survive and helped make their faith stronger. Will the legend of the five kernels help grow a new faith in Mary too?

About the Contributor(s) Kathy-jo Wargin
When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minnesota with her husband and her son.

Overall Rating
Sometimes it's easy to take for granted just how blessed we are. In Mary's First Thanskgiving we read of how a modern Pilgrim girl and her family make the difficult transition from their home in Ireland to America. Throughout the story of the first Thanksgiving, she starts to recognize her blessings as her family tells her the story of the Pilgrams that came to America. This book is filled with beautiful illustrations that bring the story to life and one that quickly became a family tradition to read. (Posted on 11/12/2016)
