Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Jones highlights Kennedy's many achievements, beginning with his service in the Navy during World War II. He offers a few details about the president's early life and family, and his assassination. McCormick includes events from Curie's personal life, but emphasizes the scientist's discoveries. The book ends with mention of her daughter's work and the two women's Nobel Prizes. Marshall's life is showcased from his humble beginnings in Baltimore to his seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Text and photographs, like the one of a segregated theater, will help to familiarize readers with some difficult topics and stimulate discussion. The size of these books is perfect for young hands. The simple texts are accompanied by black-and-white and color photos and a short pictorial glossary. These titles offer students an opportunity to begin to understand the historical importance of these figures and their legacies. Welcome additions.-Cassandra A.
