MEDIA REVIEWS
""Explorers of the New World" is well suited to the homeschool as well as classroom use. It would work well as the basis for a co-op class learning about this era of history." --www.EclecticHomeschool.org
"This informative, entertaining activity book takes readers on a fascinating voyage of their own. . . . Numerous inserts, 'Did You Know?' sidebars, maps, black-and-white representations of explorers, and sketches of events add additional facts and interest to the presentation. An appealing and useful resource." --"School Library Journal "(September 13, 2011)
"This combination history and activity book from the 'Build it Yourself' series will enliven home school and classroom history units. Mooney's narrative is engaging and very readable. Sidebars and text boxes contain difficult words (also highlighted with bold font within the text), interesting facts, or mini-biographies of explorers or native communities. Plenty of black and white illustrations and maps add visual interest." --www.clcd.com
