“The boys all agree, enthusiastically, with me that this book is the best book we’ve ever read for school. I strongly recommend it to everyone. You should definitely read it. I learned SO much that I didn’t know before. If we get nothing else done for school this year except having read this book, I’ll feel like we made excellent progress. That’s how good this book is.
“Before Columbus, The Americas of 1491 by Charles C Mann. This is the young reader’s version of his more in-depth book, 1491. It’s exceedingly well written and was engaging for my 9, 7, 6, and 4-year-olds and informative for me, making it an excellent family read-aloud. There were literal cheers every time I asked the boys to hand me this book. I don’t think it’s possible to give a book a higher accolade than that.” – Amazon Reviewer
