" This book is a great way to explore the voyage of Columbus from a new point of view. " said.

" This informational book details animals that Christopher Columbus and his crew might have seen on their voyage to the new world. Includes interesting facts about animals ranging from seabirds, to whales and manatees, to insects, fish, and reptiles. Although it has large, interesting pictures, it is for school age reading.Interesting historical facts about Columbus's voyage are included as well. Good for using with Columbus Day activities. " said.

"This small book is a rather informative read about Christopher Columbus’s time, journey, ships and many of the animals they acquired or witnessed along the way. I had read several picture books about Columbus and his famous, albeit accidental, discover of the America’s but never one quite like this. Did you know there is such a thing as ship worms that eat away holes in the wood? Or that 3,000 silk worms must die to make 1 yard of silk??? The lovely illustrations and informative text make this a wonderful addition to any elementary/middle school library or classroom. " said.

" This is quite possibly the best Columbus read-aloud that I've ever come across. Very approachable reading, very informative, and equally entertaining. As a librarian, I'm thrilled with the educational possibilities that this presents. Its coverage doesn't seek to glamorize Columbus or make his voyage seem heroic. It just presents it honestly, and with a lot of great anecdotal information included on the side. It's sure to have appeal in the classroom. Great book selection for elementary level. " said.
