Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This biography introduces the African-American scat and gospel singer who recorded more than 200 albums and sang for generations of fans. In her career, she performed at Carnegie Hall 26 times. The black and white photos portray Fitzgerald beginning in her twenties; fully-captioned, the pictures are set against colorful text pages and lend authority to the text. In addition, a "Fast Facts" section gives readers vital statistics, education, and major works. The text ends with a timeline, glossary, internet sites, recently-published books for further reading which may be augmented with the many picture books about this well-known performer such as the recent treatment of her first song, "A Tisket, A Tasket," and an index. This title, like the others in the "Fact Finders" biography series, features carefully-controlled vocabulary, short and direct sentences, photos that match the text to aid in comprehension, and an uncomplicated design. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 10.
