Very good information---perfect for our Columbus Day lesson 24 Oct. 2013
By JLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We used this book to do a Columbus Day lesson. It was easy to read, great length, and covered a lot of information. We went on to make popsicle stick boats (Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria) to futher enhance our Columbus Day experience and lesson. I love the Who Was? series of books for our homeschool lessons!

Alright... 8 Oct. 2014
By Still an LB fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Yet another installment in the well-known Who Was series, this time "biographitizing" the life of an acclaimed Spanish explorer who discovered the Carribean Islands. Excellently executed, the only reason I give this book a 3/5 is because the book leaves out crucial details.
Just about every biography aimed at kids leaves out the bad aspects of the given person(s). Take, say, Andrew Jackson. Wasn't he great? He got us Americans more land! But how did he do it? Oh, only by driving Native Americans out!
Same thing in Christopher Columbus. He took hundreds of "Indians" into custody and made them dig for gold!
In conclusion, one of the most common mistakes authors make is telling only half of the story. So there you have it!

More Balanced 4 Nov. 2014
By Debbie Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Perfect read aloud with good black and white pictures. Factual and appropriate for 3rd-4th graders. Columbusstrengths and weaknesses were portrayed better than other books. I did supplement a bit but overall it was a helpful class reading on the man who missed his goal. Rather sad actually. A lot of good guided discussion came from this book.

Nice book! 9 July 2014
By lolcatrox01 - Published on Amazon.com

This was a good book, but I think there were too many short and non-headed sentences. I still think you should get this amazing biography!
