This is a simple text that ends too soon, but retells the traditional poem that everyone knows or was taught in school about Christopher Columbus. There is a foreword titled background facts that doe a brief yet concise job of sharing some important facts about Columbus, though it leaves out a lot of the more interesting details of his life. Thiss would work as an introductory text to who the guy was, but could use some serious supplemental information to flesh out the actual guy.
A fun rhyming book to read to young children to show appreciation for Columbus Day. Students will learn the names of the three ships, what the sailors were searching for, how many sailors were with Columbus, and what he found when he got to America, all in this short read.
