Meet Christopher Columbus Book Review

Meet Christopher Columbus Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Does the thought of reading about Christopher Columbus trigger a yawn? Meet Christopher Columbus is guaranteed to keep you intrigued from the first page to the last. Theres even pictures.

Author: James T. de Kay

Have you ever heard the rhyme, "Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue, in 1492?" Well, that's exactly what this book is all about. Reading a book about Christopher Columbus might seem as painful as listening to Grandma tell you about her childhood (for the 30th time)- but it's not. Meet Christopher Columbus had my attention from the first chapter. I found the book to be interesting but informative at the same time.

Meet Christopher Columbus is almost written like a fairy tale with kings, queens, princes and royalty. It begins with a little bit of background on Columbus and then gets right to the point - his voyage to the "new world." The story is easy to follow and I had a feel for what Columbus went through. It doesn't go into too many details about other issues going on at the same time, like Christopher's relationship with Martin Alonso Pinzon. The book says they started off friends and then became enemies. That's all it says about them.

One of the things I liked about the book Meet Christopher Columbus, is the pictures. There are pictures on just about every other page. They are well done and go with the story. There's even a diagramed picture of what the Santa Maria, one of Columbus' ships, probably looked like.

Meet Christopher Columbus is a great way to learn about Columbus and his journey. It gives the who, what, where, when and why so I'm not left hanging. There are some details I would like to know more about (like did he marry, was he poor when he died and where is he buried) but otherwise the book covered everything. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about Christopher Columbus or exploration.
