Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-With short chapters and graphic slashes of orange and blue on every page, this biography covers the life and impact of Barton, beginning with her birth and including her work as teacher, nurse, and organizational leader. Boxed quotes emphasize the woman's philosophy. The book is illustrated with historical documents, original art, and color photographs of places that still exist. The captions are clear and informative. A page of photos and short biographies of famous contemporary women is included. This visually appealing title is easier than books in the "Gateway Biography" series (Millbrook) and similar to those in the "Let Freedom Ring" series (Bridgestone) and "Picture-Story Biographies" series (Children's).-Erlene Bishop Killeen, Fox Prairie Elementary School, Stoughton, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
