A simple to read biography written in a story format of mostly John Cabot and the last few pages concentrate on Sebastian Cabot, his son. John Cabot is always interesting for kids to read about because he disappeared and was never seen again on his second voyage. John Cabot first claimed land in North America for Britain, naming it the "New Found Land", now called Newfoundland. A decent read for what it is at this level. Good 2nd and 3rd grade readers will have no problem reading the book themselves and it also works well as a read aloud. ( )
