About the Author
Sally Lee is the author of numerous nonfiction books for readers from kindergarten through high school. Her interest in children’s literature began at the University of Missouri where she received her degree in education. Her years of teaching gave her desire to help children learn. When she left the classroom to raise her own son and daughter, writing nonfiction became a way to continue educating children. Her favorite part of writing nonfiction is doing research. It reminds her of a treasure hunt, especially when it uncovers off-beat facts that nobody else knows. It also satisfies her own curiosity about the world. Sally and her husband live in Dallas, Texas, with their children and grandchildren nearby.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is written in more of a traditional biography style. It has a table of contents, a glossary, bibliography, and index. But it's set up like a picture book, with large historical photos and large text for new readers. First graders won't need Mom's help to read this one, and it's a great way to introduce young children to the format of a nonfiction reference book.
