Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- As with his previous picture-book biographies, Adler presents a brief, clearly written text that provides basic information about his subject in an appealing format. He mentions that Kennedy was not a good student during his early school days and that as a young senator, women came to the senate just to watch him. The narrative concentrates on Kennedy's achievements, is free of fictionalization, and lends itself equally well to reading aloud, recreational reading, or reports. Casilla's watercolors are full-color copies of famous photographs and, while they resemble the originals, they unfortunately give individuals stiff appearances with forced and unnatural facial expressions. Kathie Billingslea Smith's John F. Kennedy (Messener, 1987) has a somewhat longer text and is geared for a slightly older audience. This is a workmanlike and worthwhile addition to help fill the demand for biographies for newly independent readers. --Jean H. Zimmerman, Willett School, South River, NJ
