We are really learning to love these books by the D'Aulaires. In looking at the information on the dust jacket today I learned that they did two years of research and then another one year of drawing and writing to put this book together. I think that's so wonderful! It was so interesting to read about Columbus. The daughter that I read this book to tonight was telling me how she wants to read "Leif the Lucky" and also how she wants to own some of these books! Cool!
