Book recommendation: The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower

The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, by P.J. Lynch

If you have the opportunity to scoop up this book at the library, do!  I think all ages of kids would be fascinated by the illustrations, but it is definitely one of those picture books with a lot of words, so it's great for older kids, too.  Beautifully illustrated, based on the true story of John Howland.

We read it in front of our cozy fire over the course of a few days and we all really enjoyed it.

  1. I'll try to find this one! Sounds good to add to our pile this week.

  2. Aaaah! Kev and I just bought this at a little bookstore at the coast! Eliana grabbed it and read it from start to finish in front of the fire, and it's been making the rounds ever since. I'm with you- totally recommend! <3

    1. YAY! Isn't it delightful? So happy you discovered it. And the author's note at the back of the book? Loved.
