Julia liked this more than she usually seems to with stories based on fact. I personally love non-fiction and even though I read a lot of fiction of different sorts, in my heart, non-fiction is set in place. I kind of always assumed Julia would love the genre as much as I did. But she really hasn't - not to the degree I'd like to see anyway. Maybe she'll be more of a fiction lover.
She can't read well enough to read this alone so we read this one together. She's not into history or geography enou

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.

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.

This whole series is a good introduction to famous folks at a casual level
