Children's LiteratureThese short "Rookie Biographies" are perfect for emergent readers. They feature people in the news as well as famous men and women of the past. Laura Bush was born and grew up in Texas. Being an only child led her to reading and eventually she became a teacher and a librarian. (The definition of librarian as someone who helps you find books in a library really gives the profession short shrift.) She met and married George W. Bush and became part of a political family. Along with his fame she grew famous in her own right. Her focus has been education and reading. She helped create the Texas Book festival. The book does not mention the National Book festival that also carries her name. The biography is sufficient for its intended audience, and it is filled with appropriate pictures although some are blurry. There is a pictorial words to know section at the end of the text, an index and a brief blurb about the author. 2003, Children's Press, Ages 5 to 7.
