Follow the Dream

Another book about Christopher Columbus before "Columbus Day" comes to an end.

Peter Sis 1991

 This one by Peter Sis has really interesting illustrations. They are full of details and symbolism that compliments the story of Columbus' life. Sis writes in the beginning that he was inspired to make this book because he grew up behind the Iron Curtain and he liked the idea that the "wall" of fear didn't hold Columbus back.

Another wonderful feature of this book is the page that provides some thought provoking questions about the pictures and why they were drawn the way they were.
