Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- These brief biographical sketches cover the lives of notable Hispanics in outline form. All share an identical format: large print, good leading, ample margins, lots of period reproductions and photographs, and serviceable indexes. The quality of the prose varies considerably, from readable in Bolivar and Juarez to redundant in Novello . But pleasure reading these are not. There is enough information for reports, and the scope is a bit greater than encyclopedia entries. For slightly older audiences, more in-depth coverage is available on Chavez, Juarez, and Bolivar in Naurice Roberts's Cesar Chavez and La Causa and (1986) Carol Greene's Simon Bolivar (1989, both Childrens), and Dennis Wepman's Benito Juarez (Chelsea, 1987). However, none of them are as well suited as these titles to students needing hi/lo or ESL materials. Although the literary quality is not high, the information is correct and the nonthreatening look may appeal to students who would otherwise be put off by biographies. --Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA
