About the Author:

Lucille Recht Penner is the author of many nonfiction books for kids, including Dinosaur Babies and Monster Bugs in Random House’s Step into Reading program. She lives in Tucson, Arizona.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?In spite of the appealing subject matter, the uninspired cover art and static interior illustrations will not grab readers' attention. Beginning readers are sure to be puzzled when Penner refers to both the friends and foes of the Jamestown settlers as Powhatans. Later, further confusion arises when a friend of Chief Powhatan's accompanies Pocahontas and her English husband and baby to England, since just pages before the settlers and Indians were at odds with one another. Readers are never told that Pocahontas's marriage to John Rolfe had brought a temporary peace. Save youngsters from frustration and consider reading Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire's Pocahontas (Doubleday, 1989) aloud, since there are still no accessible beginning-to-read biographies featuring this woman.?Gale W.
