This book was wonderful to use in the classroom with my Fourth Graders! It is written so that they can easily read and understand it and provided realistic illustrations to support the text. While it is not a book that can be easily read in one sitting it goes along well with our study of the Westward Movement and was enjoyed by all the students. It was conducive to group discussion and covered all the aspects of the topic that the students wished to know from the question "What was a covered wagon?" to "Could they recieve mail along the way?". It lent itself to projects and assignments for the students.

We are homeschoolers, and are studying U.S. History. We used this book to compliment our studies of the Reconstruction and Reform Period. My children enjoyed the layout, as well as the information. They liked it so well, they usually read ahead of the scheduled assignments!

This book was great for my 4th grade class. It is written on their level and does describe how problems were solved on the Oregon Trail. It is an informative and easy read.

...If You Traveled West In A Covered Wagon is an excellent book for kids, especially younger children who have not yet heard of the adventures of the American pioneers who braved the frontier of the American West to expand the territory of the United States. This book does a wonderful job of transporting its readers to the past and has lots of remarkable, but easy to remember facts.

One of the most impressive things about this book is how easily the author uses simple language to relay facts to the reader without making the information seem dry. Although both an adult and a history buff, I learned quite a few things while reading this book. In fact, I was happily surprised by how interesting this book turned out to be. The complimentary illustrations are terrific and inviting. In fact, ...If You Traveled West In A Covered Wagon is a solid, well put together book that leaves the reader thirsting for more information on this wonderful subject. That alone makes the book worth reading.

I would recommend that parents or teachers get their younger children a copy of this book so that they can read it to them. It will not only inform and entertain, but will leave kids begging to read more fascinating books such as this one.

We have enjoyed the book very much. It has given my grandchildren a new appreciation of how many hardships people faced in a covered wagon. Very educational, well written, and well worth the price. Highly recommend the book for grade school level and the vendor was great. The book arrived packed well and on time. Would buy from this vendor again!!

My first grade grandson has enjoyed getting more information from this book. He became so interested in the Oregon Trail when first hearing of it. It is a book he can red and it answered a lot of his questions about what it must have been like to be on that journey.

Educational and informative. I enjoyed reading this book. It reminded me of my younger days reading the "Little House" books.
