It is a wonderful book, filled with opportunities to interact with history.
Audrey Austin
I especially appreciate that the activities are simple and easy to use, the chapters are short and to the point.

The trail map uses only a current map of the U.S. The book should provide a map of the U.S. in 1803.

Format: Paperback
Following her "Leonardo da Vinci for Kids" and "The Civil War for Kids," Janis Herbert has produced another interesting and informative history lesson for children. Although less sumptuously illustrated than her two earlier books, this book is nevertheless as interesting to look at as it is to read and to engage in the entertaining and educational activities that help children appreciate the bravery of Lewis and Clark as well as what life in the early days of our country was like. (And they can also learn a lot about who that woman on the new dollar coin is :-))
WARNING: amazon.com currently shows this book as being for children ages 4 - 8. This book is written for children aged 9 and above.

Format: Paperback
This is a good history for kids. The text is interesting and exciting; this would be an enjoyable supplement to history lessons in grades 4-8. The activities are a fair assortment; (though be warned! Putting red food dye, even mixed with cold cream, on your skin will leave a mark for several days.)
Oddly enough, though there is a map showing the expedition's trail, there is no map showing the Louisiana Purchase. The trail map uses only a current map of the U.S. The book should provide a map of the U.S. in 1803.
Herbert does a fair job of putting issues in their historical perspective, without interpreting events in the light of modern sensibilities. For example, she says that Clark's slave York became a member of the expedition (I wonder if the Corps of Discovery considered him a member?), and merely notes at the conclusion that he was not rewarded with a land grant because he was a slave. She carefully avoids evaluating events by modern political correctness, while still giving a sense of the excitement, danger, and wonder of the journey.
However, classroom teachers and homeschooling parents will want to discuss slavery and racism with their students. Sacagawea's contributions to the expedition were enormous, but she obviously never received the recognition and rewards the white members of the expedition did.

Format: Paperback
I would have given this book five stars if there had been just a few more activities in it.

The book reads as non-fiction literature and is interspersed with good photos and interesting sidebars. There are also some useful activities for the child to do within the text to reinforce what is learned.
This book would be useful for all grades but can be read independently in the middle school grades. The book contains a glossary, index, web site suggestions, bibliography, listings of museums and parks and other handy references.

I found "Lewis and Clark for Kids" to be an excellent source of information and activities for both children, parents and teachers. There is an abundance of information about the actual journey plus there are great activities for children to engage in to learn more about the various indian cultures that Lewis and Clark interacted with on their journey of discovery.

I bought this book for my 4th grade classroom. I was very upset by the fact that it is not even remotely age appropriate. It's written on a high school level and is styled in a way that is very low interest. I love history and I was bored out of my mind by the format of this book. Do not buy this book for elementary or middle school aged children. What a waste of money.

This is a perfect book for kids to learn about Lewis and Clark. Not only is it informative but also holds their attention by giving them useful and entertaining activites. A must for those not in the standard school system in the states.
