Generations of American children will be familiar with the 1955 Honor book ‘The Thanksgiving Story’, by Alice Dalgliesh.It tells the story of the Hopkins family and their journey from Southampton Harbor in England aboard the  Mayflower  to the new Plymouth Colony settlement in North America and ultimately their first thanksgiving dinner with the local Native Americans.This book  won its artist  – Helen Sewell – a 1955 Caldecott Honor for her charming and stylish illustrations (she also illustrated the early editions of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s ‘Little House On The Prairie’ series) which is what we celebrate here!
