Gr 2-4-These easy-to-read titles provide basic introductions to key American figures. Sporting a large font, plenty of white space, and boldface glossary words, they will fill a need for collections in which beginning-reader biographies are popular. Each title includes colorful maps that help readers place the action. The accompanying reproductions, illustrations, and photographs vary in quality but do a good job of highlighting the texts. The books are straightforward, well-organized, positive explorations of their subjects.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Library, UT Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
