what i learned from this book that i never knew before was that Christopher Columbus was a cloth maker and he was working for his father. Christopher Columbus didnt want to be a cloth maker. So he sailed to france, africa and greece. after all the sailing to different counrys he found a new land.

I really liked it. I like the size of the letters and wordage. It tells the story of Christopher Columbus in a picture book style but gives a considerable amount more information than a picture book!

I thougt it was a great book. I learned that Columbus had to wait 6 years to get an answer from Queen Isabella.
Read with my 7 year old who is fascinated with non-fiction books. It was interesting to learn more about Columbus.
Great for a young reader. Story form helps facts and dates become real and interesting.
