    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

    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 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

    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

Large readable text tells their story as they brave the uncharted territories west of St. Louis.

This page-turner includes occasional black-and-white illustrations. By Richard L. Neuberger. 183 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    The famous story of the Lewis and Clark expedition is told from the unique perspective of Lewis' slave, York. Accompanying Lewis on his journey to provide manual labor and support, York gives us a simple rendering of the story from the viewpoint of a man desiring freedom. York was a real person, who unfortunately was never granted his freedom, yet he participated in one of the greatest expeditions in the history of our country. With beautiful painting-like illustrations, this story is sure to captivate. ~ Alissa

    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

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
