These books are meant for young readers. Each page has facts, highlights key words and in the back of the book are websites one can visit to learn more about her. For a beginners book, I think this one is very informative. It talks about not only Pocahontas' actions that have made her so important to american, native-american history but also about her life. It describes her as a child and later on as a mother. ( )

This biography picture book depicts Pocahontas as a heroic peacemaker. Pocahontas was from the Powhatan tribe that had established a home in America long before the English settlers ever arrived. Once the Englishmen settled in Jamestown, tensions quickly arose. Pocahontas was then taken captive and transformed into an English woman. Later, Pocahontas married John Rolfe, which lead to a peace treaty between the settlers and Indians. Although her life was cut short due to an illness she suffered in her trip to England, she also contributed to the growth of Jamestown. Pocahontas has long been remembered for her accomplishments as a peacemaker and the prosperity of Jamestown. ( )

I really like this book for the fact that it gives girls a woman to look up to. Pocahontas helped make peace between two completely different groups of people and with men as their leaders. I really liked how this book gave background on her and her tribe as well as what happened in her life later on. I think this would be a great book to use in my future classroom. ( )

Pocahontas was the daughter of chief Powhatan. She was a Native American and she was also a famous peacemaker. She encouraged peace between the English settlers and the Indians when Jamestown was being established. Pocahontas was captured by the English in hopes that her father would release his English captives for his daughter, but the chief said no. So she was taken to England and she married John Rolfe and had a son. She sadly died at 2, but her legend still lives on. ( )
