Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Two biographies that will engage and inspire readers. Pei came to the United States from China in 1935 to study architecture. Known for his modern structures such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the pyramid entrance to the Louvre, he influenced the world of architecture in ways that are still very much in evidence. Black-and-white and full-color photos help explain concepts and provide visual representations. Hayslip was born in Vietnam and emigrated to the United States in 1970. Taught by her father to protect the land of her ancestors, she started the East Meets West Foundation to encourage Americans and Vietnamese citizens to heal from the Vietnam War. Her humanitarian efforts in Vietnam have helped her fulfill her father's wishes. Background information about the subjects' native countries includes geographical and historical facts. Englar introduces two very different people and shows how they made their dreams a reality.-Delia Carruthers, Sunset Ridge Middle School, West Jordan, UT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
