This book is an excellent representation of the expedition of Lewis and Clark. It shows what they found on their expedition and how they came up with the name for the prairie dog.
Sharlene Spencer
This story of Lewis and Clark has humorous illustrations. The story and characters are true. A good book to have in the classroom for discussions on exploring.
