Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This simple and easy-to-read biography will broaden any young reader's knowledge about Christopher Columbus and his famous voyage. Designed for the beginner reader, this book relays facts in large font, abundant illustrations and a progressive timeline. It is part of the "First Biographies" series and has a table of contents, glossary, bibliography, index and related web sites section. It is an excellent resource for introducing nonfiction to a young class and could be ordered in multiple copies for small reading groups. The simple sentence structure and vocabulary are easily followed and would be an ideal springboard to word charts and introductory lessons in punctuation. 2002, Capstone Press,
