From the Back Cover:

Did you know that:

  • Jean Paul Getty put pay phones in his guests' bedrooms to save money on phone bills?
  • Leonardo da Vinci wrote backwards in his notebooks so that nobody could read them?
  • Pele´s first soccer ball was a grapefruit?
  • Pablo Picasso never threw anything away, not even empty cereal boxes?
  • Agatha Christie wrote a book that actually saved someone's life?

These and other fascinating facts make up the biographies in What A Life!

This three-book series takes a fresh approach to making reading both pleasurable and motivating! High-interest biographies focus on less-known facts about famous figures, rather than the chronology of events typical of most biographies.

Each book in the What A Life! Series takes a multicultural approach, featuring 24 short biographies on inspirational figures from all over the world.
Subjects range from historical and political figures to athletes, artists, entertainers, and humanitarians, including:

  • Marie Curie
  • I.M. Pei 
  • Eva Perón 
  • Agatha Christie 
  • Muhammad Ali 
  • Bruce Lee 
  • Leonardo da Vinci
  • William Shakespeare
  • Cesar Chavez
  • Pablo Picasso
  • Maria Montessori
  • Mother Teresa

In addition to the biographical reading, each short, easy-tofollow unit includes:

  • Pre-reading questions and activities.
  • Vocabulary exercises -- definition and usage.
  • Main-idea and reading-skills exercises.
  • Questions on detail and inference.
  • Discussion, comprehension, and writing activities.
  • Answers to exercises at the end of each book.
