School Library JournalGr 2-4-Interesting and readable accounts of courageous individuals. Chapters are written in a clear manner and accompanied by photographs, reproductions, and quotations. In the first book, the author focuses on Anne Frank's hope and optimism during her hiding and captivity. Harriet Tubman relates the amazing bravery of a remarkable woman. Helen Keller provides information about sign language and Braille and includes a Web site where readers can view the Braille alphabet and type in a name to read it in Braille. These volumes are carefully researched, presenting good and respectful coverage.-Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
