    This interesting book tells about the Lewis and Clark expedition in a fun and unique way. Munford, a funny little water molecule, gets flung onto Captain Lewis's hat and then sticks with the group for their journey to the Pacific Ocean. From the water molecule's point of view, the book tells about how they traveled, new plants and animals they found, different people they interacted with, and more. This fun-to-read book is a great way to introduce kids to the Corps of Discovery and makes the story more interesting for those who may not have a natural love of history. Fun black and white illustrations are included on every other page. By Jamie Aramini, 170 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    This classic Landmark Books reprint from 1951 brings the Lewis and Clark story to life for young readers. Large readable text tells their story as they brave the uncharted territories west of St. Louis. Of course, Lewis and Clark wouldn't have been successful without the help of York (a black man), Sacajawea (a Native American woman), and other men from Germany, Ireland, France, and other regions of the United States. This page-turner includes occasional black-and-white illustrations. By Richard L. Neuberger. 183 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    A delightful alternative! These reproductions of radio programs originally produced for the armed services dramatically tell the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Introduced by Jim Hodges each story auditorily recreates an event-by-event portrayal of the trip west. Rather than storytelling, this MP3 format CD contains thirteen 30-minute-long vintage radio productions that utilize sound effects, music, and various actors portraying the main characters. ~ Janice

    If you want to get a real feel for the early years of our country, this book would be a great place to look. Everything about the book has the look of antiquity: pages with darkened edges, period paintings used as graphics, even reproductions of documents from the time. Text is focused in two-page segments on major topics, with interesting insets about famous people and events. Read about George Washington being chosen to lead the Continental army, the winter at Valley Forge, victory at Yorktown, the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the War of 1812. Document reproductions are contained in pouches that resemble a stained and worn "Old Glory" flag. Reproductions are many and varied; a few examples are the Constitution in handwritten script on parchment-like paper, the resolution passing the first 10 amendments to the Constitution (the Bill of Rights), and a letter to Meriwether Lewis from President Thomas Jefferson. 63 pgs, hc with magnetic closure.

    A beautiful, energetic picture book that not only tells the tale of Lewis & Clark's historical expedition, but does so in their own words, to boot. The highlights from the trip are captured, accompanied by text boxes containing edited, but accurate descriptions taken from Lewis and Clark's journals, and lively, energetic illustrations of the other Corps of Discovery members, Native Americans, animals, and plants they met up with, exciting events, their camps, and forts. After the ecstatic team finally beholds the Pacific at the end of the tale, facts about the journey back home, and some of their amazing accomplishments are featured. An informational and highly entertaining version of the Lewis and Clark expedition. - Jess

    Lewis and Clark's journey would not have been the same without Sacajawea, the young woman who served as their guide, translator, and peacemaker. Sacajawea's story is told in alternating chapters, going back and forth between Sacajawea's and Captain William Clark's voices. Authentic excerpts from Clark's journals appear throughout the text, and an author's note in the back explains how research was conducted for the story. A map of Lewis and Clark's expedition is located in the front of the book. By Joseph Bruchac. 200 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Trek across the U.S. with Lewis and Clark, encountering wild animals, Indians, landscapes, and vegetation through tons of fun art and writing activities! Students are encouraged to keep a journal and write selections similar to what Meriwether and William might have written, such as descriptions of plants, animals and places that had never been seen before by westerners, and poems and other short writing activities. A variety of art activities and crafts involve children in the journey: learn how to draw many different animals, make your own telescope and quill pen, discover some of America's great nature artists, and many other activities. Real passages from the journals of Lewis and Clark are interspersed throughout the pages and are the basis for each project. Related websites for further exploration are included, as well as a glossary of terms in the back. The revised and expanded Geography Matters version of the Visual Manna original. ~ Steph

    Join Lewis, Clark, York, Sacagawea, and her son Jean Baptiste Charbonneau (affectionately called "Pomp") in their famous expedition of 1804-1806! Explore the wildlife, plants, flowers, people, and food the Corps of Discovery encountered during their historical trek westward to the Pacific Ocean. Included are 56 exploration cards, a trail map poster (18" x 24"), stickers, and instructions. Each exploration card is numbered, categorized, and dated. The cards bear an illustration of the discovery, the name of discovery, and a brief but informative description. There are directions on how to play two different games for 2-4 players. In Lewis & Clark Rummy Twist, be the first player to "go out" by collecting groups of three or four cards from the same category. For example, four reptile cards and three coastal Indian tribe cards would make a winning hand. In Lewis & Clark Trail, gather any five sequential cards following the route of Lewis & Clark. Young explorers can line up all of the exploration cards in numerical order and create their own expedition trail! Once they have completed the journey's sequence with cards, they can compare it to the poster.

    Get a "dog's-eye-view" into one of America's greatest journeys of discovery. Seaman is the Newfoundland dog that accompanies Lewis and Clark and the men of the Corps of Discovery across the great interior of the United States to find the Northwest Passage to the Pacific. This historical account was written by Roland Smith as he took excerpts out of Captain Lewis' diary and then creatively retold the events from Seaman's viewpoint. This book is thoroughly researched and wonderfully creative. As we all know, dogs see, hear, and smell things we can never even dream of perceiving. Thus, who better to give additional insight to the adventures of Lewis and Clark than their canine friend who was there every step of the way? 287 pgs, pb. – elise
