    Young history students again have the ability to participate in history, not just learn it in the newest historical activity book in the popular Kaleidoscope Kids series. In this title, theyll create some terrific projects and learn some of the same skills the explorers in the expedition used as they follow along with the story of the expedition. The book begins with Jeffersons election to the presidency and his idea to take an expedition west to discover the fabled Northwest Passage. It follows Meriwether Lewis through his months of preparation, and then through the whole of the expedition, frequently featuring excerpts from the many journals of Lewis and Clark. In fact, the text itself reads in a journal format, where the authors have taken events from that particular day from the journals of the explorers, and have retold it in a simpler format, free of the many misspellings and grammatical errors that frequently arise in the original journal entries. (Okay, so they were explorers, not writers). Featured side notes are presented about interesting facts and events of the journey, and scattered throughout are pictures, paintings, pages from their journals, and other illustrations. True to this series style, there are plenty of activities. Along the way, young explorers will build their own balsa wood model keelboat, do some land surveying and dead reckoning, make a Mandan earth lodge, carve a canoe, make their own moccasins, try some Shoshone sign language, and build a bullboat. Other less involved activities, questions, and challenges are presented throughout as well, using maps, suggestions to start your own journal, to really observe and sketch some species we see every day, plant Indian corn, and draw an outline of the U.S.A in the dirt or sand from memory! At the end, the main characters are followed up with a short What Happened Then? bio, and a page of resources contains suggestions on some more books, websites, and videos/movies you may want to check out.

    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 Lewiss hat and then sticks with the group for their journey to the Pacific Ocean. From the water molecules 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

    Join Lewis, Clark, York, Sacagawea, and her son Jean Baptiste Charbonneau (affectionately called Pomp) in their famous expedition of 1804-1806!

Young explorers can line up all of the exploration cards in numerical order and create their own expedition trail! Once they have completed the journeys sequence with cards, they can compare it to the poster.

    The Lewis and Clark Expedition was a very adventurous trip, but often the excitement of it is lost in school, where dry historical facts and simple retellings make it seem boring or unimportant to kids today. This book will certainly keep that from happening, as it is full of colorful pictures and graphics that will fascinate readers and help them see the explorers as real people. Full-color pictures include old portraits of the participants, replicas of boats, tools, and weapons used by the team, photographs of sites seen by the group, maps, and more. The book tells a bit about the people involved, things they took on the trip, where they went, how they knew where to go, how they traveled, people they met, and more. A great introduction to the Expedition, and a book kids will read just for fun. By Barbara Fifer, 48 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    A beautiful, energetic picture book that not only tells the tale of Lewis & Clarks 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 Clarks 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

    Get a dogs-eye-view into one of Americas 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 Seamans 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

    The famous story of the Lewis and Clark expedition is told from the unique perspective of Lewis slave, York.

With beautiful painting-like illustrations, this story is sure to captivate. ~ Alissa
