--Publishers Weekly, April 25, 2011, *STAR
"Napoli expertly gets into the mind of Sacagaweas son…a beautiful, atmospheric narrative that explores the possibilities of that momentous expedition….Madsens glowing illustrations, created digitally, employ rich jewel tones….Children will need nonfiction sources to gain context about Lewis and Clark, but this lyrical picture book will help them understand the journey on a human level."
--School Library Journal, July 2011
"Poetic text and lush artwork tell an evocative story for children familiar with the history."
--The New York Times Book Review, July 15, 2011
"Full page, full color illustrations beautifully capture the natural landscape surrounding the travelers. Readers will enjoy hearing about this journey from a simplistic yet poetic point of view."
--Library Media Connection, November/December 2011
"Riding in a cradle board on his mothers back, Sacagaweas baby son Jean Baptiste provides a fresh perspective on Lewis and Clarks monumental westward journey.... Richly hued, realistic, digitally rendered illustrations capture the pristine grandeur of the American west and its first inhabitants. The wee narrator, Jean Baptiste, appears on his mothers back or in her arms in every double-page spread with high plains, waterfalls, mountains, forests and ocean as backdrop until he runs free in the final scene. Experience the wonder of Lewis and Clarks journey with the youngest expedition member."
