“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.”
“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!”

“Great job bringing history to life Parry family!”
"Hobomok and Thanksgiving is a well-told story of a little known event revealing much about the faith of the Pilgrims and why they set aside Days of Thanksgiving. I highly commend this work by Rebekka Parry which will be enjoyed by children and adults alike."
President, Providence Foundation
"In a time when our faith is being persistently attacked by secularists, Rebekka Parry tells a story of faith our children, and adults, need to hear. I hope this will be one of many more stories that will help awaken our people to their Godly heritage and turn their faces back toward God."

We don’t get bogged down in the dates but in the people and stories of the past. What did they wear? How did they live? What did they believe? How do their actions and stories impact us today? When we bring our programs to you, we strive to make history tangible and relevant to the audience. (That might mean stroking a beaver pelt or trying on a felt hat.) We think history is fun, and we enjoy sharing it with you!
