Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book, part of the "Exploring the World" series, tells about the voyages, exploration, and colonization of John Smith. It also explains the important role that John Smith played in settling North America, from his writing to his colonization skills. Doak does an excellent job of giving details of the time, travel, and life of Smith without making the text confusing for young readers. The layout of the book is wonderful. The full-color pictures depict important people, places, and events in Smith's life. The book also includes a glossary, a did-you-know facts section, important dates, important people, other books, Web sites, museums, and an index that helps the readers who want to learn more about Smith or who want extra insights for biography reports. A book that is similar is John Smith: English Explorer and Colonist by Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., which is part of the "Colonial Leaders" series. The "Colonial Leaders" book gives a lot of information and few pictures and is geared for a more advanced elementary reader. The books in the "Exploring the World" series have fewer pages, more full-color pictures, and comparable text and insight; so, this book might be a better choice for a reluctant reader. The book is a great choice for book reports. 2003, Compass Point Books,
— Joella Peterson
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Each of these series titles presents basic information on the subject's early life, his motivations, and highlights of his more important expeditions. The accessible texts provide historical context: they are rich with information on the relationships between these explorers and contemporary figures. Doak also discusses the impact the arrival these men and their fleets had on native peoples. The author is careful to indicate when few historical documents exist and what historians have deduced from other supporting evidence. Plentiful, average-quality photos and reproductions illustrate these accessible titles.-Jennifer England, The Berkeley Carroll School, Brooklyn, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
