As an Elementary school teacher, Ms. Fritz has skillfully taken on the task of explaining Columbus’ motivations, successes and failures in a clear and accessible way. The narrator uses phrasing to emphasize key ideas which enhance understanding. This text is appropriate for children of all levels. Wendy L.

I found these readings to be comforting and clarifying. The narrators voice lends itself to the era of the writings.

Dreadfully eye opening

I first read of this book through a NY Times article on Uranium One. I decided to read this as a download. I was appalled at how pervasive corruption is in DC. Every level and both parties I am embarrassed at my own naiveté and idealism. I assumed that when one reaches out to help the desperately poor through education they are seeking the greater good. Boy, was I surprised.

My grade 5 students will enjoy reading, listening and discussing this text.They are learning English and having the Audible performance will heighten their learning. Thank you.

I loved this book. It helps preteens and teens learn about self acceptance. I teach 5th grade and happy to add this to my classroom library.
