Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These two introductory biographies will attract students because of their large print; manageable size and length; open format; and numerous black-and-white photographs, maps, and charts. Both books clearly explain their subjects' theories and contributions. An added bonus is the inclusion of age-appropriate suggestions for scientific activities, such as making a thermometer (Curie) or a worm zoo (Darwin). Such projects are not included in similar titles, such as Carol Greene's Marie Curie (Childrens, 1984). The writing, however, especially in Charles Darwin, does not flow quite as freely as that in Greene's work. Rather, Anderson and Poynter write in a style that tends toward short, choppy, declarative sentences that occasionally lack variety of structure, a relatively minor problem in two useful resources.-Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
