“Rebekka Parry (author of young readers’ story on Pilgrims’ Indian friend Hobomok), again, has penned a time-transporting history book for young readers. What was it like to be a boy in the Mayflower Pilgrim community at Plymouth, 400 years ago? Giles Hopkins was one boy who lived the answer to that question. Mrs. Parry’s action-packed and picturesque fact-based story, of Giles Hopkins’ first year at Plymouth, provides an entertaining portrayal of typical and unusual life experiences that Giles Hopkins faced, as the Mayflower Pilgrims learned to live with new challenges in the New World, while making new Indian friends, such as Samoset, Squanto, and chief Massasoit. Enjoyable and informative!”

“I have had the pleasure of getting to know Rebekka Parry when she and her family have visited Plymouth to discover the rich Christian heritage of our country. She is a great researcher that has a unique ability to dig through primary sources to find the true and human story of our country. Being a mother she has an ability to relate to children and write in a style that is relatable and teachable at the same time. I highly recommend this book.”
