Gr 2-4-These easy-to-read, lively biographies highlight important personal and professional events in their subjects' lives. The books' design is pleasing, with a duotone or color photo opposite each large-print page of text; decorative borders and touches of gold add to the effect, which is as if one were looking at family photo albums. Key words are in bold type, and the glossaries have guides to pronunciation. Each title has interesting sidebars and concludes with an interview with the author. Along with the "Meet the Author" series (Richard C. Owen), these clearly written titles fill the need for biographies for this age group.-Augusta R.
