Molly and her family have moved to America from Russia.Her mother says they moved to find freedom. But the children in Molly's third-grade class make fun of her accent and clothes. That doesn't seem like freedom to Molly at all.At Thanksgiving everyone has to bring a Pilgrim doll to class. The doll Molly's mother makes looks like a Russian peasant girl. It doesn't look at all like the Pilgrims Molly has seen in her schoolbook. Molly is afraid she'll never fit in with her classmates now.

This is an excellent book that tells a story that feels authentic and is not just a vehicle for transmitting a message of tolerance. The super-realistic illustrations are beautifully rendered and kids, especially girls, will probably want to hear this story again and again. But the inexpensive paperback edition is too small to do the illustrations justice, plus the text is printed on cheap paper. Much better to stick with the full size hardcover ISBN 0688162797

Love the story, I would like to have had a larger version to read to my class. There is one word "stupid" in the text which I had to omit when reading to my second grade students or they would have gone bonkers. Worked really well for introducing our ancestor reports especially around Thanksgiving.

Excellent book for guided reading and a historical fiction unit.

Wonderful story about an immigrant girl named Molly dealing with fitting in to her new home in small town America (set some time in the first half of 20th century). When she is given an art assignment to make a pilgrim at home she asks her mom to help her, but then is embarrassed that her mother creates a doll dressed in traditional clothes of her home country. Her mother's choices, Molly's own struggle to deal with Classmates teasing and the teacher's understanding all come together to tell the story about what a true pilgrim is. Perfect for these times (2016-postcelection) of anti-immigrant rhetoric that has lead to fear among immigrant children in our country.

easy to read book with a good message -- it is awfully short, though (which I didn't realize when ordering), so my daughter read it in under 15 minutes. she liked it though.
Minimal quality reprint.
