Item description for DK Readers: The Story of Pocahontas (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone) by Caryn Jenner...

This Level 2 book is perfect for children who are beginning to read alone.

In this book, children learn the story of Pocahontas. Famous for helping maintain peace between the English colonists and Native Americans, this brave Indian woman befriended the settlers at Jamestown, saving the life of their leader, Captain John Smith, whom she later married. Longer sentences and an expanded vocabulary make this series of 48-page books slightly more challenging: Level 2 is appropriate for children who have started to read but still need help. Information boxes full of background information will stimulate inquisitive minds. These books contain between 700 and 850 words, and they are approximately 70 percent pictures and 30 percent text. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.

Reviews - What do customers think about DK Readers: The Story of Pocahontas (Level 2: Beginning to Read Alone)?

Playful Pocahontas Seeks Peace  Jun 5, 2002
This book is sure to capture a young child's interest. The life of Pocahontas is beautifully illustrated with art and full-color photographs. This is an easy-to-read story for children who are beginning to read alone. It will help your child develop their reading skills, general knowledge and love of reading.

In Level Two: There are information boxes filled with fun facts, an index and longer sentences with increased vocabulary.

So, what did I learn?

That Pocahontas was given the English name Rebecca!
Pocahontas is a nickname that means "playful" and her real name was Matoaka

What children might not enjoy learning?

That she didn't marry John Smith, yet there is a surprise ending.

Children will learn that Pocahontas helped encouraged peace between the settlers and Indians and that a statue now stands in Gravesend, England where Pocahontas is buried.
