Kelly Bakshi has brought to light, the question of who came to this country first. Although we celebrate the travels and discoveries of Christopher Columbus, Ms. Bakshi has raised many questions in this book for children to contemplate. As a teacher herself, she has not enforced her research or beliefs in her written pages, but merely laid out the facts that lead children to come to their own conclusions.
This book is an educational read for children, a tool for teachers, content for librarians, and a guide for parents. Kelly Bakshi has written this book of history with twists and turns that will intrigue any student. The pictures and illustrations are sure to capture the attention of both children and adults.
Christopher Columbus; where did he go, what did he do, and why did he do it? What happened to him in the end? It’s all here. After each segment there are questions that children can ponder, and apply their own critical thinking.
Five ***** stars plus. Great Book!
