This book about Sacajawea portrays her as a hero while glossing over the fact that she was basically a slave pressed into service by her white husband, who either bought her or won her in a bet after she was kidnapped by another tribe. I'm sure Lewis and Clark could not have done it without her, but I'd be worried about the messages students might take away from this book. Adler writes that "during her seventeen months as part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, she helped assure the success of t ...more

I would love to use this book to teach students about American Indians. I think this book has great illustration and uses very simple vocabulary. It would help young students to start learning about history. I would recommend this book for 4th and 5th graders .
This book, though poorly reviewed, provided a simple, richly illustrated intro to Sacagawea for Caoimhe. I edited the attack by the Hidatsa, and C's favorite section was the reunion between Chief Cameahwait and Sacagawea.
I liked this history book that was also a biography of the Indian woman whom traveled with Louis and Clark. I thought this book could be used for so many different topics like history and a biography for starters.
This book was ok. I was not a fan of the illustrations, but it did provide a simple overview of Sacajawea's life and I might still use this as an aid in a lesson plan.
