This is a simple text that ends too soon, but retells the traditional poem that everyone knows or was taught in school about Christopher Columbus. There is a foreword titled background facts that doe a brief yet concise job of sharing some important facts about Columbus, though it leaves out a lot of the more interesting details of his life. Thiss would work as an introductory text to who the guy was, but could use some serious supplemental information to flesh out the actual guy. ( )

This story tells children the story about Christopher Columbus and his exploration in an easy way for young students to understand. ( )

This book is written for second graders but you could also read it to your kindergarten or first grade students. It would be a great one to read on Columbus Day. It talks about dreams coming true while using a rhyme scheme.

I remember this book from either first or second grade and I loved it. I did a project on it as well. It is a relitively short rhyming book, but gives you the story of Christopher Colombus and his adventure accidentially stumbling on the Bahamas instead of India. ( )

Loved this book. It tells the story of Christopher Columbus in a very simple manner. The story rhymes the entire way through, which is exciting for the reader. The illustrations are water color and help tell the story. I also like that fact that the book offers the reader background information about Columbus at the beginning of the book. I would highly recommend this book, especially to elementary teachers for their classroom. ( )
