Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This is one volume in the "Real-Life Reader Biography" series for students in grades 3 to 8, which includes a well-organized format that is easily accessible to inexperienced researchers. Each title begins with a basic Table of Contents, bold-blocked sidebars of the most important information on each page, a timeline on the person's life, and finally, a fairly detailed index. In this particular biography, Sheila Escovedo's (1959- ) strength and determination to penetrate the male-dominant world of musical percussion is emphasized as when she first begged her band-leader father to let her play in his band at the age of fifteen, and then later, when she became one of the most influential musicians in the business...male or female. A celebration of a woman overcoming both gender and cultural barriers. 1999, Mitchell Lane Publishers, Ages 9 to 12, $15.95. Reviewer: Betsy Barnett
