Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Morning Girl by Michael Dorris

I found this book while searching for Columbus era books. This is written from the perspective of a Taino brother and sister living on a Bahamian island in 1492. It is very gentle and easy to read (My first grader could not read it herself, so maybe a 3rd grade reader?) and ended when Columbus landed on the island. 74 pages in all.

Exploring The New World by Melody Herr

An Interactive History Adventure - 5 story paths, 43 choices, and 18 endings. You can follow Columbus, Coronado, or Sieur de La Salle. I only read the Columbus ones and there was talk of the first outpost being overrun with the native islanders (you get shot).

What Columbus Found by Jane Kurtz

A Ready-to-Read level 1 book about Columbus and the pumpkins he brought back to Spain.

Just wanted to share my finds.
