We love the History Maker Bios. They are great for kids and adults as well. We have used several for biography book reports.

I recently purchased "Walt Disney" by Jane Sutcliffe, knowing it was available in this series of books, but not seeing it until the day I purchased it for around $6.00. The book is geared towards children, with its simple sentences and illustrations to go along with actual pictures of Walt Disney and scenes from his films. I am a Disney fan and any book about Walt Disney, no matter how big and detailed or small and informal, is a welcome addition to my Disney biography library. I liked some of the pictures inside and also enjoyed the picture of Walt on the front cover of the book. I would definitely recommend this book to kids or anyone else interested in learning a brief history about the "father" of Mickey Mouse and the founder of Disneyland.
