Review: Columbus

User Review  - Goodreads

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. Read full review
