  • Bad enough that my six year old found a copy of the Disney Pocohantas history mash up somewhere, and that she is obsessed with long haired princesses Disney we know about But this lamentably lauded book was granted automatic credibility from living in her school s library.One star is one too many A quick glance is enough to see that it is full of derogatory depictions, as well as imprecision and straight up lies which is ironic, given Pocahontas is reported to have confronted John Smith about th [...]


  • This children s picture book was originally written in 1946 so granted it has that historical stamp on it The lithographs held my five year old s attention through the whole story This is not a short paragraph on each page book, so I was surprised Is the the true story of Pocahontas I m sure there are many versions of that story depending on who told it and when and to whom.I wanted to share a story of bravery with my daughter and this was a good read It will not be the only encounter she or I h [...]


  • This is a great book that should be read with some guidance and explanation from the parent This book contains a lot of outdated racial references For example, the Native Americans are referred to as red skinned throughout the book So I think that children need some explanation from the parent when reading this book Parents also need to explain that some of the common anecdotes told about Pocahontas s life may be myth than fact I still rate this book with four stars because the illustrations ar [...]


  • This was a nice, gentle introduction to Pocahontas The illustrations were good, but I would have liked to see clothing on her even if it s not historically accurate The story briefly touches on Jamestown and Captain Smith, but you d need to read another book in order to fully cover that topic I wish that it had told why she died instead of just saying she never returned to her land This would be all you need along with a Jamestown book for K 2nd or 3rd grade After that you could use this, but m [...]


  • The brief life of Pocahontas from favorite daughter of the Powhattan to British nobility is drawn in pictures and words John Smith, the Jamestown settlement, her kidnapping, marriage to John Rolfe, birth of her son and trip to London are all included This is a rather rosy telling Sensitive children are spared knowledge of her death at the age of 22 this was confusing and unsettling for our students that knew the rest of the story , the death of her son, and her complicate relationship with John [...]


  • This is a fascinating account of Pocahontas s life It s a short story, but includes enough details to be a fairly comprehensive overview of her background, family, and adventures There aren t many illustrations in the book that we borrowed from the library, so we may borrow the book with the colorful illustrations We borrowed this as part of a kit with an audiocassette narrated by Frances Sternhagen and paperback book We enjoyed listening to the story as we followed along with the book.


  • Thirty or so years ago, this would have rated 4 stars Now that I am sensitive to depictions of Native Americans, I did squirm in several places That s why I read the books before I give them to the kids I still like the art, and there s a lot of decent history here When reading this with kids, I ll modify some of the sentences, and we ll wonder about some of the things we read, which should lead us to other recent sources.


  • This book would be useful to incorporate during a unit on Jamestown, as it not only provides information about Pocahontas and her influential role in the colony s success, but it also contains information about the other key players in the colonization of Jamestown, such as John Rolfe and John Smith.


  • While I didn t find this as good as the Greek or Norse myth books that this couple did, this is still a fun book to have nonetheless I remember reading this from the library when I was a child This book is dated to be sure, but it s still a nice sample of D Aulaire art.


  • Another excellent book from the d Aulaires Spiritual life of the Native Americans and the magic was one thing we needed to discuss further after reading thisbut the kids I enjoyed this very different sort of princess tale


  • We really enjoy the D Aulaire books They are beautifully illustrated and are full of information A good biography of a very interesting character.


  • I liked this book a lot but it is not a 5 star book Because it is just kind of dull Because it is just about like one idea, it does not switch around.flag


  • We are fans of D Aulaire books and this classic story of Pocahontas A great introduction for early elementary kids Read this with your children before exposing them to the Disney version.


  • Read this book a couple of times years ago Part of our beautiful feet pkg We love all the d Aulaire books.b 12 30 16




  • D Aulaire books have always been my favorites for biographies The illustrations along with the written for children history is fantastic.





  • The art is beautiful I am not familiar with the story of Pocahontas, but this was well written and interesting and kept the interest of my children 7 5.5.
