I love this new kids’ book that’s perfect for Columbus Day. Christopher Columbus and the Age of Exploration for Kids by Ronald A. Reis doesn’t sugar coat everything that happened. But it marks an important part of our history with fascinating details, fun history and beautiful art and maps.
I’m just saying that this book will get my kids into the spirit of this adventure-inducing day better than me lecturing them about it. It’s also chock-full of crafty activities like Make a Model Canoe and Create Your Own Quadrant.
This book is great for elementary kids, and little ones will enjoy the pictures and activities. I’ll keep it around long after because it’s an excellent resource for middle school Christopher Columbus reports one day.
So check it out on this holiday–it can keep the kids busy on this day off.Add a Comment
