The Grumpy Pilgrims
WILL WESCOTT, author
Have you ever experienced a painful, terribly long and uncomfortable trip with your family? Well, 400 years ago in 1620 the Pilgrim children had it MUCH worse! Their 66-day voyage across the ocean was completely miserable, and when they finally arrived, their lives were still unexpectedly awful! They had many good reasons to be GRUMPY! Yet after a while, many unexpected good things also happened. Through these awful and wonderful experiences, the Pilgrim children learned about the world and themselves. The Grumpy Pilgrims is a story we can all relate to, giving us permission to feel grumpy when merited at times, while encouraging us to look out for surprises that give our lives meaning and real joy. Happy Mayflower 400th Anniversary!
