School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 2-4-These books are attractive but lack substantive information or any mention of the subjects' awards or honors. This seems to be an especially noticeable omission when Feinstein neglects to mention Dr. King's Nobel Peace Prize, and the text jumps from 1963 to 1968 on one page. Full-page photographs or reproductions face each page of text and add to the information. The glossaries, in the form of "Words to Know," are on the verso of the title page, a switch from the usual placement, where it is more helpful to readers. Kathleen Krull's Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez (Harcourt, 2003) and Doreen Rappaport's Martin's Big Words (Hyperion, 2001) capture the spiritual essence of these great Americans.-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
