    What a wonderful book - easy to read and understand, this would be a comfort for a child is who struggling with a move even today. I appreciate the historical call-out boxes off to the sides where it shows factual information about items or events as this family moved from Missouri to Oregon. The pictures are easy to relate to and beautifully drawn. And being of Native American descent myself, I appreciate the author's choice in the little girl saying she met her first Indian and it wasn't a scary experience. I'd like to have this book in my own personal collection.

    What a wonderful little book. The illustrations are lush & interspersed with some actual photographs. The map of the Oregon Trail is as good as any I have seen; they always seem to have too much detail or not enough. Then an inset map shows the trail as it would be in the current United States.

    Wow... I really felt that I was living this young girls life. She keeps a diary as her family travels West to Oregon Territory. I loved the pictures and how everything seemed to make the story very lifelike and flowing.

    1845: a family emigrates from Missouri to Oregon Territory in a wagon train. Fits right in with a Little House on the Prairie study.

    He stumbled over quite a few words in this one but managed it. The idea of people traveling so far, and it taking so long, bemused him somewhat.

    On the cover of this book it says it's a level 2 reader, but I would have to disagree... I think it would be more for a level 3 reader. Pages full of text and often larger words. This was a very nicely done Historically written story about a family joining the wagon train and moving across the nation. In boxes on the pages are 'vocab words with definition. So if you were using this to help teach your child that gives you a spelling list to work off of. The History behind how the families did what they did, how they felt, how some didn't make it etc. Written on a child's level but leaving open issues for discussion with an adult if needed.
