Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Oftentimes writers are tempted to glamorize or at least prettify the facts for young children. This recent non-fiction entry in the well-respected "All Aboard Reading" series nicely avoids that trap. In simple language and with few words on each fully illustrated page, the true story of the hardships, frustrations, setbacks, and joys of wagon train travel is told. Readers follow one wagon train as it leaves Missouri, bound for California. Along the way, they share the pioneer experiences of fording rivers, climbing mountains, crossing deserts, meeting Indians, and reaching their goal! The illustrations complement the hard-working text with drawings that don't mince details, but do radiate the colors of the American heartland.
