    1 thought on “Land of the Pilgrims' Pride

    1. Age-appropriate intro to basics about the settling of each of the 13 colonies, accompanied by cute illustrations. This is supposed to be a rhyme, but both rhyme and meter are awkward and sometimes contrived. Mrs Gingrich would have done better to write just straight prose.I own a signed copy, addressed to me, thanks to my Uncle Harold and Aunt Barb, who have both worked faithfully in local government service the majority of their lives.

    2. Land of the Pilgrims' Pride is wonderful and taught me FACTS even I didn't know about the original 13 colonies. What I like about this book, and all the Ellis the Elephant books, is that Calista Gingrich weaves ACCURATE historical FACTS with clever rhymes and easy to understand graphics for our youngest Americans (and yes, others). Calista Gingrich's "resources" section is brilliant and a wonderful way to keep children interested and hunting more FACTS about US History, which, sadly, are sorely [...]

    3. What a piece of trash! This book is not particularly entertaining or charming, even if you ignore its attempt to present an anodyne and insulting version of early American history. Young children don't need to be told of ALL the varied horrors of America's history, but neither do they need to be fed weirdly manipulative, flag-waving, partisan schlock. In addition, baby elephants do not wear pilgrim hats. How would that even fit. Come on.

    4. Overall, I think this is a very interesting book. This was our first Ellis the Elephant book, so I definitely think we will need to check out this book series. I picked this book out from the library based on the title: Land of the Pilgrims' Pride, thinking it would be a good Thanksgiving read. The Pilgrims that landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts wasn't the focus of the story. But instead more about all of the original Thirteen Colonies and how The United States of America started. This book is p [...]

    5. This book gives little children a great way to learn about our country's history. In this second book of the series, Ellis the elephant takes children on the journey through the start of our country. He goes through the Mayflower and how the pilgrim's came over on it, and how they befriended the Native Americans who lived there already. They met Pocahontas and they started their colony. Ellis explores the beginning of our government and how Ben Franklin discovered the electricity that we have to [...]

    6. What a wonderful way to introduce children to the history of our great country. From beginning to end it delivers factual information highlighted by beautiful and child friendly illustrations. The resource section at the end of the book provides additional information.I purchased this book, along with Callista Gingrich's Sweet Land of Liberty, for my grandchildren. While they are very young I believe that Ellis the elephant, the rhyming text, along with the beautiful illustrations will more than [...]

    7. I loved this book. It is essentially a very basic exploration of the settlement of the American colonies by Europeans, written in a way that children can understand. There is a spread for each colony, accompanied by cute illustrations. In the back of the book is a list of child friendly resources and places to visit in each of these states.

    8. Look like they changed the title of this one somewhere along the line. I found the rhyming meter uncomfortable, but it is an excellent tour of the Thirteen Colonies, with extra resources at the ned for each colony.

    9. Very well written and great graphics. Those who say this is republican propaganda have not read the book. It focuses on the people, not the politics.

    10. I think that it is kind of tricky to write a book with historical tidbits about the 13 colonies, that rhymes. I liked this very much.

    11. Another by Callista Gingrich that my son has so much fun reading. He was literally wooting with excitement when Santa brought another book about Ellis the Elephant for Christmas this year.

    12. Good book on the 13 colonies. A bit too hard for the 2-3 year old crowd. I will get it again in a couple of years.
