Christopher Columbus was the son of a weaver who lived in Genoa, Italy, in the mid 1400 s. Columbus did not want to follow in his father s footsteps. More than anything he wanted to be a sailor and explorer, and when he was fourteen his dream finally came true when he was able to get a job as a ship s boy. Over the years Columbus learned everything he could about sailing and ships and in 1477 he began talking about the possibility of sailing west to get to Asia.

Although he was not the first, the voyages of Christopher Columbus to America did prove to be a major part in history. In addition to his explorations, historians have also recognized the navigational skills of Columbus, as he found the best routes across the oceans to America. Christopher Columbus was born in Genoe, now known as Italy, in 1451. His father, Domenico Colombo, was a poor weaver. Columbus had three brothers and one sister.

I liked this story because it doesn't simplify the story of America's discovery. We can see ambitions, greed, and selfishness as part of the voyages to America. There is no romanticized view of the contact between Europeans and native populations. I was quite surprised to see that in a graphic text. Like the biographical texts in these Graphic Library collections, the text lends itself to thematic discussions, comprehension strategies, exploration of characters' motives, goals, and personalities, and its graphic retelling is a motivating factor to look for more information. I give it a high recommendation.

I am a teacher and my students absolutely love these books! I would give them 5 stars, but they are cheaply made and pages start falling out after only a small amount of use.

This is good history, presented in a fun comic-book format that gets the attention of kids who would not ordinarily enjoy a historical book. Plenty of action, from storms to shipwrecks to armed uprisings to Spaniards slain at the fort to Columbus being shipped home in chains.

Try it for your child -- they might like it! But if it's for a school report, be sure to check with the teacher first -- some teachers don't approve of graphic books.

Good notes section and glossary (includes words like colony, hourglass, monastery, noble), good index.
