Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jane Harrington
Abigail and her three friends, Jacob, Zach, and Bo, are bored with a cartography project their teacher, Mr. Caruthers ("Mr. C"), is making them do after school. But things get much more exciting when Mr. C turns the assignment into a time travel adventure using a computer he invented in order to save history from losing many of its prominent figures (this premise is not particularly well explained, however). With a mysterious envelope in hand, the kids join Sacagawea, the Native American translator and guide for Lewis and Clark, and help her discover her "dream." The social studies content in this chapter book is meaty and interesting, but the fictional element is not especially engaging. Though the narrative is in first person, from the perspective of Abigail, the voice just doesn't come across as natural and kid-like. And, with four kids on the adventure, there is always a sense that too many main characters are being juggled. The full-page, black and white illustrations—one for each chapter, approximately—are nicely done. Very unfortunately, though, the reproduction of Lewis and Clark's map is nearly impossible to see. "A Letter to Readers" at the end of the book summarizes the history and concepts presented. Some other stories in this "Blast to the Past" series have taken on Abraham Lincoln, Walt Disney, Alexander Graham Bell, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I read Sacagawea¿s Strength by Stacia Deutsch. It is about Sacag

    I read Sacagawea’s Strength by Stacia Deutsch. It is about Sacagawea and in this series, some kids, Bo, Zack, Abigail and 1 more. They help Sacagawea not listen to an evil person named Babes Magee. I would not recommend this book because there is not a lot of action. Also, in the middle natives eat a raw deer. It is kind of scary because 9 and 10 year olds wonder around alone in the past. I could predict what would happen, and what happened was not exciting. The problem was that Babes Magee an evil person, was trying to become famous in the past and change the past also. The kids stopped her by her from doing that by jumping on her back. Also, took me a while to read the book because it was boring. I would not recommend Sacagawea’s Strength .That was about Sacagawea’s Strength

    This is a great book

    This book is very good, the best Blast to the Past yet. A new character is introduced and it's makes me want to read the next books even more.
