Great introduction to the topic of going out West for young kids. Informative and easy to read, kids will love it if they like non-fiction, historical works.

Great book to introduce kids to life on a wagon train. Full of good, factual information, and is written with kids in mind. ( )

I absolutely love this book. This series of books are so helpful and interesting to include in content studies in the classroom. All of Levine's books, help the reader understand what life would be like in all different situations and times in history. These books do a great job grabbing the attention of the reader and teaching important historical information in a fun way. This book focuses on the time in history when settlers were moving West. It discusses the troubles they face such as Indians and running out of supplies as well as life on the Oregon Trail and living in covered wagons. This would be great resource to include in a history lesson about moving West. ( )

Genre: Informational
Critique of Genre: This book was wonderful for covering basic facts about the Oregon Trail. There were big pictures and simple definitions of new vocabulary words that were age appropriate. Sometimes informational books can be overwhelming with dry facts, but this makes the trail come alive!
Age Appropriateness: 5-10 ( )
