I enjoyed this book for many reasons. First, I like that the font is large and easy to read. In addition, each page is not filled with too much text. There is a nice balance between text and photographs/illustrations. I also liked that there were different vocabulary terms in a bold face font. At the beginning of the book it lists different terms to be on the lookout for while reading. One of the pages has the word "compass" in bold font, and shows a picture of a compass. Finally, I enjoyed that this book teaches the history of Christopher Columbus coming to America, but does not overload readers with too much information. I think it's a great book for young readers because they will not be overwhelmed by the content, and the pictures will help them understand new vocabulary terms. The main message of this biography is to teach students about Christopher Columbus. ( )
