The Lost Colony of Roanoke is a great book I enjoyed reading it because the author presents the information in an interesting way, so that you get information but do not feel like you are reading an article or a textbook It is an easy read and is not dry at all, and I believe students would be captivated by the mystery that is the lost colony This is a great book to hook students that may not like history because of how it is written and with the pictures and diagrams that help the reader have a [...]
Part of literature unit One hundred and fifty people missing, as if they disappeared into thin air, the country of England wondered what happened to this group of colonists The lost colony of Roanoke is a true mystery from history, with only a few clues to go by, including the letters CRO carved into a tree historians for decades have wondered what became of these people This book provides a lot of important background information for the reader as to how and why the area of Roanoke had been set [...]
I ve been fascinated by the lost colony of Roanoke ever since I was a young schoolgirl This book for older elementary aged children, by Jean Fritz, goes into quite a lot of detail about the four expeditions to Roanoke Island backed by Sir Walter Raleigh, the relationships good and bad between the English and the natives, and the chance meeting with Sir Francis Drake s fleet The book also explores the clues found much later to explain what happened to the fourteen families who went to colonize Ro [...]
I enjoyed The Lost Colony of Roanoke by Jean Fritz Fritz has a way of making history come alive Her writing is geared for upper elementary school students or middle school students, and her book subsequently provides an increasing amount of detail about the colony s purpose and possible reasons for its disappearance Fritz s book is lavishly illustrated by Hudson Talbott, and the beautiful illustrations make it a lovely book for pondering over.The author does not tell exactly what happened to the [...]
Easily 5 out of 5 stars for me I ve always been fascinated with histories mysteries and Roanoke is no exception I will read any book on the subject whether it be for kids or adults I loved this one It was easy to read, the illustrations were absolutely gorgeous, and it was informative I can t think of a better review than that besides please read this It won t take but a bit of your time because it s so short and it will be totally worth it, I promise.
Well written and nicely illustrated Yes, it s a children s book, yet I m an elder adult and thoroughly enjoyed this story of the mystery at Roanoke I plan to keep this one in mind as a gift for 5 7th graders and their grandparents Truly a joy when history is presented in such a lively fashion.
I enjoyed remembering about this puzzling spot in history Just what happened to the colony of Roanoke Interesting facts and theories.I admit that I am partial to Jean Fritz I like how she writes and makes history and it s people come alive for the reader There is good reason that she is considered one of the top biographers writing for children today.
Biographical Book This is a story about the first colony attempted on the America s by England After many attempts, the colony is abandoned The book even ventures into why it may have happened, and who could be to blame I really like how different anecdotes about the characters like King James did not like smoking that taught me things I did not know before.
Another well written nonfiction brings readers into the puzzle of an historical event Talbott s art and Fritz s storytelling tell the stories and theories about Roanoke and lets us know that about some things, we will just have to wonder.
This is one part of American history that has always fascinated me The mystery around the disappearance of the colonists at Roanoke is cleverly told and includes great illustrations This is a book that could easily get a student interested in history.
Biography The book describes the characters and story of the finding and settling of the Roanoke colony in an early America After describing about the colony soon becoming lost, it explores some of the clues that help us understand what might have happened to the colony.
So, I got this book because Emily visited here, but apparently I checked out the wrong copy This is written on a first grade level I read it anyway, because, afterall, it IS a book, but now I have to find one on the topic written on a much higher reading level.
We often enjoy this author Her material is thorough but not boring for little people.
Came back from a vacation in the area and wanted to refresh historical information.
I love reading children s history I learn so much so fast Great read
Juvenile book about the ages old mystery of what happened to the Roanoke colonists, including little Virginia Dare, the first child born in America.
This is an interesting story about the voyage to the New World.
It was very good for a children s book A very nice overview of the history.
