In preparation for Thanksgiving, a great story to pass along to your kids is the story of Squanto.

Before he wrote his bestselling biographies of Wilberforce and Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas wrote a nicely illustrated children’s book called Squanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving, which includes the story of his Christian faith.

For an introduction or recap, see this CNN interview with Metaxas:

Another version, which does not downplay the Christian aspect of the story, is the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre drama, The Legend of Squanto (or for half the price, you can download it as MP3s).

You can stream an abridged version below:

    Thanks, Justin, for posting this. I have really enjoyed reading this book to my students, and so it was interesting to watch this interview. My two sons and I just finished listening to the audio files also – We all loved it!
