    1. A good children's version of Columbus' life and voyages giving some insight into the thoughts and values of the man, noting some weaknesses as well as accomplishments.


    2. The kids read this to themselves this fall, but I ordered the whole Beautiful Feet CA history package, and it starts with this one, so I reread it to them. I appreciated the nuance re: treatment of the native inhabitants of the islands Columbus discovered and the dueling desires to spread the gospel and make money. Beautiful illustrations, of course, and it held the attention of all the kids.


    3. I enjoy teaching history to my kids by focusing on individual historical figures. The D'Aulaire's books have been favorites around our house. The illustrations are great and all of their books are well written.


    4. We always enjoy the beautiful D'Aulaire books, but this one might be our favorite so far (though we haven't read Abe or Ben or Buffalo Bill).


    5. It sort of pains me to only give this book 4 stars; it is really so good. (I am one of those people who either passionately loves a book or hates it. There is rarely an in between.) These d'Aulaire books are GORGEOUSLY illustrated, and I feel like I am looking at a work of art as I flip through the pages. All of the d'Aulaire biographies are books that I am proud to own and collect. HOWEVER, I give it 4 stars because I feel like they are a bit awkward to read aloud. The information in the book i [...]


    6. We are really learning to love these books by the D'Aulaires. In looking at the information on the dust jacket today I learned that they did two years of research and then another one year of drawing and writing to put this book together. I think that's so wonderful! It was so interesting to read about Columbus. The daughter that I read this book to tonight was telling me how she wants to read "Leif the Lucky" and also how she wants to own some of these books! Cool!


    7. We love d'Aulaires' books, the illustrations are beautiful and they know how to tell a story! I like that they didn't make Columbus out to be totally angelic, but they also tamed it down a lot. I really enjoy their mythology books.


    8. My son and I enjoyed this book. It was a good introduction to Columbus and his strengths and , to some degree, his weaknesses. It did include info about Native Americans being forced into slavery, it went a little deeper into Columbus's four journeys to the new world than most kids' books.


    9. This is such a beautiful book. It's a great way to introduce kids to information and history: delightful pictures and an engaging story.



    10. We really enjoy all the D'Aulaire books. Read this one again for Columbus day 10/12/15Read and went through the Beautiful Feet Questions. Changed from 4 stars to 5 stars.b 10/10/16






    11. The artwork is so beautiful in the d'Aulaire books! I love how this read, like a story not like a textbook. We are looking forward to reading more from this family.




    12. He really enjoyed this one. Did a beautiful portrait of Columbus based on one of the illustrations in the book!
