Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The name of this great explorer is often lumped in with those of others when students are studying the men who journeyed to the New World. If you are interested in Canadian history, then his exploits will be of considerably more interest. He sailed for France and brought back furs and fish that he obtained from the native tribes in Canada. There, they were called the First Nations people. Life was hard for the settlers in Canada. They were not prepared for the cold winters, and many crew members died. In subsequent years, they learned from the native peoples and had more success. More settlers arrived, and soon he settled in Quebec. The battle between the French and the English forced him to leave, but when the king of England finally allowed New France to be managed by the French king, Champlain was able to return to Quebec. He died there and is known as "the Father of New France." The closing page provides a few more facts about this brave explorer. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
