Several features of the books in the “Rookie Biographies” series make them a great introduction to several influential and important individuals in the United States, suitable for early readers. Here, the featured person is the 44th President of the United States. The information and details provided are comprehensive and appropriate for beginning readers. With the simplistic lay out, word choice, and sentence structure throughout the 32 pages young readers will gain insight about the life of the country’s first African-American President. A table of contents, colorful photographs and illustrations, captions, a timeline, a glossary, an index, “facts for now,” and additional fast facts are included in this biography. Other books in the series present Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, and George Washington. This series would be a welcome addition to a school library collection. Classroom teachers will appreciate the text simplicity, thorough information, and text features in nonfiction to assist young readers. Reviewer: Rosa Roberts; Ages 5 to 7.
