Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1–2—With simple text and colorful captioned images, these small-sized, introductions manage to pack in a lot of information about six people who have influenced history in very different ways. Short sentences, clear maps and time lines, "Fast Fact!" text boxes, and other nonfiction book features, such as glossaries with pronunciation guides, assist kids in learning facts without being overwhelmed. Large full-color and black-and-white photos and reproductions illustrate every spread. Each book also includes a poem about the subject and an inspirational section that encourages readers to think about helping others, becoming innovators, and getting involved in a handful of other pursuits that echo the achievements of the featured person.
Children's Literature - Sarah Raymond
Almost every child across the land has heard the name Walt Disney, whether it is dreaming about visiting the amusement parks or because they have watched one of the many feature films created by Disney. Not only is the name well-known but also are the many characters dreamed up by Walt. Who hasn't heard of Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck? This short, but cute, little book gives the basic facts and history of Walt's life and how he became the creator of the amusement parks, television shows, and films. The text is simple to read with great pictures of Walt himself as well as some of his more infamous characters. The book is filled with little fast facts and blurbs that make the reading and pictures by far more interesting. Young children will enjoy reading about Walt and how he started his career. The book also does a nice job of incorporating features synonymous with nonfiction that will help young readers navigate non-fiction in later years such as a table of contents, timeline, glossary, and index.
