Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Three well-written biographical profiles of seven notables in each of three fields, plus six shorter (three pages) biographies. The longer entries (six pages each) cover early years, skills developed, obstacles overcome, a personality profile, record of accomplishments, and special interests. Several quotes from each person are also prominently displayed in each featured biography. A number of well-known people are included in each title: Maya Angelou, Alex Haley, Alice Walker, Ralph Abernathy, Thurgood Marshall, John H. Johnson, Naomi Sims, Oprah Winfrey, Mildred Taylor, and Ernest Gaines to name a few. How or why the length of the entry was determined is not addressed, and many of these people seem to have equal importance in their fields. While the writing is informative, it is the candid photos that stand out. The attractive layout features a good balance of color, white space, photos, and text. Useful for reports and recreational reading.Eunice Weech, M. L. King Elementary School, Urbana, IL
