Perhaps even more so than the later one, this event symbolized a new chapter in history, one well worth keeping in mind as we continue to ponder what it means to be an American. Gioia's book, geared to fourth grade through middle school, sets the scene for today's young explorers of history by presenting an overview of the world in the 1560s. But fifty-six years before the Pilgrims celebrated, Spanish explorer Pedro Menendez arrived on the coast of Florida and founded the first North American city, St. Augustine. On September 8, 1565, the Spanish and the native Timucua celebrated with a feast of Thanksgiving. The Spanish most likely offered cocido, a rich stew made with pork, garbanzo beans, and onions

This book should have really been called "A Short History of Florida" as it hardly mentions the first Thanksgiving. It says little about who attended the First Thanksgiving nor the fact that the Bishop of Havana would come for a week each year to officiate in the Thanksgiving celebrations. There is no mention of the fact that most Spanish colonies celebrated Thanksgiving each fall. That the Pilgrims probably became accustomed to this celebration while living in the then Spanish controlled Holland before coming to Cape Cod. Too bad it does not live up to it's title and researched better. Florida and the rest of the USA deserves to know where the real first regular Thanksgiving was celebrated. Not the tradition taught by our uninformed public schools.

America's REAL First Thanksgiving by Robyn Gioia is a must-have for all elementary school teachers of Florida's history. Full of interesting and little known details, it is a well-written account not only of the first thanksgiving celebration held in St. Augustine, but of the fascinating historical events preceding this noteworthy occasion. In addition to the rich text, the book contains beautiful full-color illustrations and photographs with informative captions, a timeline, a glossary, and a recipe for Cocido, a type of bean soup served at the first thanksgiving. This book (and its companion teacher's manual) would be a valuable addition to Florida's fourth grade curriculum by providing a concise but thorough glimpse into Florida's past and the REAL first thanksgiving.
