Format: Paperback
While doing the QCA history unit 19 Tudor exploration, I purchased several books to support the children's learning. This book was one that captured the children's imagination. With it's informative, yet easy to understand text, cartoons and story running through it, it told lots about Drake and his circumnavigation of the Globe. They used it in literacy too, when they had to produce an information text of their own choosing. I can't recommend it highly enough. Great book for 8 - 11 yeras

A Great Book 20 Mar. 2011
By Anthony P. Schiera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the story of Sir Francis Drake's voyage around the world told from the perspective of Francis Fletcher.
It takes place on the GOLDEN HINDE, a ship that Drake took on his voyage around the world. It is a look at a famous sea voyage, written like it is giving advice to you on how to survive at sea, and every page has handy hints for the trip. My favorte advice is the page that says, "Aching and swollen joints? Bad breath? Bleeding gums? Teeth falling out? You have scurvy! Eat plenty of fresh fruit." This book is an awesome story for children (and even adults) who are interested in the Age of Exploration. The book is a non-fiction story. --Silas, Age 8

Terrific book!! 7 Feb. 2007
By Victoria Mcdaniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was so entertaining even I enjoyed reading it. It blended real facts with funny tidbits of the life and times of Sir Francis Drake. If your child has an explorer report to do and chooses Drake, by all means get this book!!
Great books in a lively illustrated form for people who like the real truth about history, good and bad, mostly bad... 12 Oct. 2014
By D. Gill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All of the "You Wouldn't Want to..." Books are fantastic!!! All are written by college and university professors and historians. While it's not light and fluffy kid reading, a lot of it is the hard truth about how terrible and often dangerous the real world in history has been. Great for the history buff, but the comic book style illustrations can grab a kid's attention (or someone with the attention of a kid). We have almost all of the books, my kids love them all.
