Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of the new "Exploring the World" series, Cartier portends good and useful books to follow. Jacques Cartier is placed within the world of Columbus and the early world explorers who followed his sails. A Breton boy, most probably bred for cod fishing in the Grand Banks off the coast of Newfoundland, Cartier rose to be master of his own expeditions to the New World under the flag of France. It was Jacques Cartier who claimed Canada (which he also named) for France—and Cartier who first misused the friendship of the local tribes. His forays between 1534 and 1536 are here easy to follow on a useful map. The text is informative as well as intelligently written, and it is joined by handsomely reproduced graphics and photographs, as well as the usual endmatter of glossary, index and more. The result is a new book highly recommended for use in lower school social studies units. 2002, Compass Point Books, $21.26. Ages 6 to 10. Reviewer: Kathleen Karr
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Cartier looked for a northwest passage to China; instead, he discovered and explored Canada. Magellan initiated the first sailing voyage around the world but died en route. Coronado explored the American Southwest in search of gold and other riches. Public opinion considered their quests, grounded in the search for wealth, a failure at first. The men's lives are examined in balanced, well-written texts that objectively share the impact of the explorations on the environment and on native populations. Numerous color reproductions of old prints, maps, paintings, and manuscripts add validity to the texts. Full-color photographs, most notably of the geographic sites as they are today, complement the texts as well. Each book has a time line, a list of each explorer's important contemporaries, and a "Did You Know?" section of trivia. The "Want to Know More?" section includes books, Web sites, and places to visit and write for more information.-Pamela K.
