Gr. 1^-4. From the first simple sentences citing her birth and tribal background to the very last, noting the new dollar coin with her image, this Picture Book biography covers the important known facts about Sacagawea. As is characteristic of this series, the narrative is clear, direct, and never fictionalized. A few dangerous moments are chronicled, but the factual tone is more like an encyclopedia article. The soft watercolor art is more successful in depicting landscapes than human figures; e.g., Sacagawea's facial features appear more European than Native American. A list of important dates, an author's note, and a selected bibliography are appended but there is no pronunciation guide and no map. Brief but competent history for primary social-studies units, this is also recommended for older students with low reading skills. ((Reviewed June 1 & 15, 2000)) Copyright 2000 Booklist Reviews
