Children's Literature - Jill Walton
Young readers who follow the stars, particularly teen stars, will want to read about actress Dakota Fanning in this biography. The format is structured to entice readers who stay current with pop culture. Many photos, fact boxes, and quotes draw the eye, and the format imitates a magazine in book form. Celebrity gossip is of popular interest to the general public in this media-rich world, and this fast read is designed to appeal to multiple levels of readers in upper elementary grades. The content is light, and the quotes lack substance but this series is not about the development of critical thinking skills; it is about reader involvement. The glossary and index are sketchy. Young readers who chose this book to read will likely be familiar with the actress and her roles in film, and they will know about her career. They will be interested in the descriptions of Fanning's family, home, and schooling. Part of the "Teen Stars" series. Reviewer: Jill Walton
