Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The year is 1606 and King James I gives his permission for the London Company to set sail to North America. They depart in December on the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and the Discovery. After four months, Captain Newport and his men finally reach the Chesapeake Bay and anchor near Cape Henry. This illustrated story captures the history of Jamestown, the first permanent English Settlement in North America. Each page consists of square white captions that give the reader the history of Jamestown, and white speech bubbles that breathe life into the historical figures living in Jamestown. The book provides a great resource for teachers, especially those teaching 4th grade in Virginia. By gearing the illustrations to the intended age range, the book is sure to keep readers' attention. At the end of the book, there are more historical facts about Jamestown that the reader may find interesting. A glossary, a bibliography, a recommended Internet site, and a list of more books about Jamestown are located at the back of the book to provide additional teaching tools. Teachers may also find the index helpful when they are looking for a specific Jamestown topic. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
