AT LAST! THE OTHER SIDE OF THANKSGIVING STORY.

Any additional comments?

A fan of Graham Greene since "Dances With Wolves", who leaves behind his quirky humor in this story, and gives a feeling reading, I also am thankful to the author, Mr. Metaxes, who did such a nice job telling what it was like to be an Indian/First People before the Pilgrims landed, and how Squanto, after being unwillingly captured, taken to Spain and finally returned, made an extraordinary coincidence by meeting up with the first Pilgrims, speaking English. The dinner
sounded authentic, and delicious. Would I so love to include lobster and mussels at this historical dinner! But, at least I can add succotash, another dish that ran true for the time because Indians
did grow the "THree Sisters": corn, beans and squash.

I took off just one star for the music, which at times was irritating and invasive, not really adding to
or enhancing the mood.

This is a family story,worthwhile for both children and adults.

Meh

I was really excited about this, but the pace at which it was read made it a drag. Really disappointed. I’ll probably just get a physical copy.

Audio mix (narration over music) makes comprehension difficult

My primary issue with this book is about the audio mix. The narrator’s voice is low in pitch, and I had to struggle to understand the words because the accompanying music was too loud. The difference in average pitch between the voice and music exacerbated this issue. My 5-year-old gave similar (though less precise) feedback. I used several different speakers, and on some I could barely parse the story.

The story is otherwise fine; keep in mind age appropriateness and always have discussions with your child(ren) about historical context, e.g. what is different and what is the same 350 years later (in US and in other parts of the world), etc.

Stories for the ears<br />

This story is one of the weaker of the series. Rabbit Ears does a great job normally, but the music was overpowering and the story is a bit weak.

That being said thus is still a good way to introduce children to great stories that are short and meaningful.
