If Plymouth Rock could talk, what would it say? In the children’s storybook “The Secrets of Plymouth Rock” the Rock indeed talks. It tells the story of the Arrival of the Pilgrims. Most importantly young audiences in Massachusetts are learning not only does the Rock talk…it sings! Singer/Songwriter Candido Bretto (as the Rock) takes students on a rockin’ musical journey from cover-to-cover of the book with 12 original songs. The Rock sings about hope, optimism, survival and self awareness. The music CD and the school assembly based on the book are both coming in Summer 2019.
“The songs are adorable! I think you’re onto something.” -Rebecca Parris
Written by a Teacher for her Students
Author Diane L. Finn a Plymouth elementary school teacher of 30+ years, wrote a curriculum with the Plimoth Plantation to teach about the Pilgrims. “I wrote the book as a way to teach young children on our tours when they visited Plymouth Rock.” Diane was referring to “Colonial Lantern Tours” which she owned and operated for many years in Plymouth.
Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks requires 3rd grade students to learn about the Pilgrims. Therefore, The Secrets of Plymouth Rock is the perfect assembly for your school. Don’t forget, in 2020 America will celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Arrival of the Pilgrims.
