Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
These four titles are part of the new Dorling Kindersley biography series for children and young adults. Printed in China on glossy paper with an abundance of photographs (color photos produced in Italy), the books are wonderful to look at and most interesting to read. The four authors have good credentials and all have a talent for getting a lot of information in the 127-page books. The page is laid out so that almost all pages have a photograph—sometimes spreading over two pages. Across the top of the open pages is, in each book, a frieze of photographs. Small "definition boxes" explain what may be new in the text. In the biography of Helen Keller, for example, one chapter has definition boxes for Emanuel Swendenborg and the Braillewriter. While the number of chapters may vary, each book has a timeline, a bibliography and suggested places to visit for further study. The titles are definitely recommended for libraries. The cost is reasonable and they may also be considered as textbooks. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2004, DK, 127p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 12 to 15.
