SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
 

Young Pedro, a boy who accompanied Christopher Columbus on his voyages, recounts in his journal the sights he sees and the adventures and dangers he encounters on the trip. 

MY REVIEW: 

I read this book aloud to my children.

The story is about a young boy named Pedro de Salcedo, who sails aboard the Santa Maria with Christopher Columbus from August 3, 1942 to February 14, 1493. I don’t know how historically accurate the book is, but we learned some things about Columbus that we didn’t know before.

We found the story interesting, and we enjoyed it!

MY RATING: 3 stars! We liked it!!

This book qualifies as: 

#108 for my 2011 100+ Reading Challenge
