Read full description of the books:
...If You Traveled West In A Covered Wagon is an excellent book for kids, especially younger children who have not yet heard of the adventures of the American pioneers who braved the frontier of the American West to expand the territory of the United States. This book does a wonderful job of transporting its readers to the past and has lots of remarkable, but easy to remember facts.
One of the most impressive things about this book is how easily the author uses simple language to relay facts to the reader without making the information seem dry. Although both an adult and a history buff, I learned quite a few things while reading this book. In fact, I was happily surprised by how interesting this book turned out to be. The complimentary illustrations are terrific and inviting. In fact, ...If You Traveled West In A Covered Wagon is a solid, well put together book that leaves the reader thirsting for more information on this wonderful subject. That alone makes the book worth reading.
I would recommend that parents or teachers get their younger children a copy of this book so that they can read it to them. It will not only inform and entertain, but will leave kids begging to read more fascinating books such as this one.
