ALA Booklist
First published in 1983, this affecting story tells of a Russian immigrant girl whose mother makes a contemporary Pilgrim doll (modeled on herself, a modern pilgrim who came to America seeking religious freedom) for the class model of the first Plymouth Thanksgiving. The new illustrations, shaded pencil drawings, are often sensitively drawn, though the characters' expressions sometimes seem exaggerated. Apparently set in the 1940s, the story still has relevance today. (Reviewed November 15, 1998)
Horn Book
Cohen's story of a young Jewish Russian immigrant girl who learns about the first Thanksgiving and teaches her classmates a lesson about pilgrims has been re-illustrated and given a new, full-color cover. The pencil illustrations, now on white paper instead of cream colored, are uneven--the characters do not always show the feelings expressed in the text--and lack the understatement of the original artwork.

A modern Thanksgiving classic about an immigrant girl who comes to identify with the story of the Pilgrims, as she seeks religious freedom and a home in a new land. Now with a gorgeous new cover and lovely interior illustrations.

As Molly nears her first Thanksgiving in the New World, she doesn't find much to be thankful for. Her classmates giggle at her accent and make fun of her unfamiliarity with American ways.

And Molly’s mother only makes things worse when she creates a doll for a school Thanksgiving project that looks more like a Russian refugee than a New England Pilgrim. But the tiny modern-day pilgrim just might help Molly to find a place for herself in America.

The touching story tells how recent immigrant Molly leads her third-grade class to discover that it takes all kinds of pilgrims to make a Thanksgiving. Originally published in 1983, Molly's Pilgrim inspired the 1986 Academy Award-winning live-action short film.

Don't miss acclaimed author Barbara Cohen's moving immigrant story, a perennial Thanksgiving favorite in homes and classrooms, now with beautiful new art.
