Title: Westward to OregonWestward to ORegon
Author: Patricia Pfitsch
Illustrator: John English
Pages: 24
Reading Level: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★

Lizzie loves sitting beside Papa as he drives onward towards the Oregon Territory. And even more, she loves when Papa hands her the reins and lets her steer the team. It’s such fun! But Mama disapproves of Lizzie learning to drive and do other such boyish things.

Can Lizzie find a way to convince Mama that it’s a good thing that she’s an adventurer at heart?

Conclusion. This story would have done better as a longer chapter book (which would have given the author time to explore the themes that were briefly presented).
