Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Many biographies are written for older readers who are at an independent level. The "Famous Americans" series is an unusual alternative because it was created to accommodate very young readers. The titles in the series cover a variety of Americans who have influenced history. John F. Kennedy came from a large family in Massachusetts. He studied at Harvard, then joined the Navy. He became a politician, serving in the House of Representatives, the Senate, and eventually as President of the United States. Kennedy was dedicated to the quest for peace. One of his important decisions was to start the Peace Corps. He also worked for the equal rights and fair treatment of all people. Each book in the series is the perfect size for small hands (seven inches by six inches). The text is leveled for young readers and features a few sentences per page. Illustrations and photographs support the text well. Appendices include a glossary, index, and further references. An interesting Internet link sends readers to the ISBN for the book, and a "Fact Hound" will provide more links. Whether used as read-alouds or independent readers, these biographies will serve as a valuable addition to the history curriculum in a primary classroom. 2003, Pebble Books, Lynch
