Gr 2-4-Information in these two biographies is presented chronologically in five chapters. Short succinct sentences are printed in good-sized type and enclosed in red, white, and blue borders. Each spread contains captioned, full-color reproductions that extend the texts and enough information to prepare a first report or gain a basic introduction to these men. Terms or concepts are explained within the bodies of the texts, and historical events that occurred during the subject's lives help give readers a broader picture of the times. There is so much more to these men than fits within the 32 pages allotted to them here, but the books do cover the essentials.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
