This book is sure to capture a young child's interest. The life of Pocahontas is beautifully illustrated with art and full-color photographs. This is an easy-to-read story for children who are beginning to read alone. It will help your child develop their reading skills, general knowledge and love of reading.

In Level Two: There are information boxes filled with fun facts, an index and longer sentences with increased vocabulary.

So, what did I learn?

That Pocahontas was given the English name Rebecca!
Pocahontas is a nickname that means "playful" and her real name was Matoaka

What children might not enjoy learning?

That she didn't marry John Smith, yet there is a surprise ending.

Children will learn that Pocahontas helped encouraged peace between the settlers and Indians and that a statue now stands in Gravesend, England where Pocahontas is buried.

After reading The True Story of Pocahontas: The Other Side of History, written by Custalow and Daniel, which shares the Mattaponi tribe’s version of the story, passed down orally through the generations, I was anxious to find a children’s primary-level book for my child on Pocahontas that respected her tribe’s perspective. I examined all six that my local library has. Pocahontas, by Caryn Jenner, is one that was far too skewed toward the colonialists’ perspective for my comfort.

My second grader was doing a research paper on Pocahontas. This was the perfect reading level for her. I did quite a bit of research on Pocahontas and this book reflects the actual history of her story, which is very interesting (much more interesting than the Disney movie). The illustrations are wonderful. Highly recommended!
