Booklist - 02/01/2015 Many facts about the past become so mythologized that we end up taking them for granted, and the Good Question! series invites students to think more critically about cornerstones of American history. In Did Christopher Columbus Really Discover America?, the author questions whether someone can “discover” an already populated country, covers earlier instances of travel to the New World, and talks about some of the negative effects of Columbus’ pioneering voyage. Each two-page spread pairs a few straightforward paragraphs with a visual complement, usually an illustration that resembles an oil painting. Useful both as a concise examination of American history and as a critical thinking tool. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
