Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-The first title includes overviews of three people who earn their living using their imagination: a drama director, an architect, and a professional musician. Although each biographical snapshot is brief, the work of each individual has a connection to young people. The information on Julie Taymor, Tony Award-winning director and costume designer of The Lion King, shows how one creative person has drawn inspiration for art from her childhood and educational experiences. The profile of architect Maya Lin, the designer of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, presents her work as a blend of art, math, and science in a design puzzle. A third chapter describes the artistry of jazz trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis and his triumphs as a composer, performer, conductor, and teacher. Animal Watch introduces the professions of zoologist, entomologist, and ornithologist. Six short chapters address where they work, how one becomes a scientist, etc. Both volumes have eye-catching photography.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
