Gr 3-4-The great achievements of Chavez and Reeve are highlighted in these introductory biographies. Each individual overcame obstacles and became a role model and hero for many people. Both books are straightforward and clear. The tone is hopeful and encouraging. A few relevant childhood details and background information are given. Each man is portrayed as an ordinary person whose passion drove his life. Crisp, full-color photos are included on every chapter spread, and the page layouts are attractive and uncluttered.
