About the Author:

Grace Norwich has written many books for young readers on a variety of topics, including health, fashion, animals, and more. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-These books open with an introduction in the voice of the subject of the biography, followed by "People You Will Meet" and a chronology. Next, several chapters outline the main events in the subjects' lives', and end with "10 Things You Should Know About" and "10 MORE Things That Are Pretty Cool to Know." In Washington, readers get broad strokes regarding the man's childhood and years at Mount Vernon, and then follow the time line into his military career. Specific moments in his career and in American history are highlighted, often in sidebars. Sacagawea follows the same format, beginning with the young woman's life with the Lemhi Shoshone and including her capture and subsequent sale by the Hidasta. Her role as interpreter for Lewis and Clark is shown as important to the success of their journey. Both books have sketchlike illustrations throughout. One drawback in these volumes is in the design. The placement of text boxes often interrupts the flow of the text and leads to some flipping back and forth to get all of the information. For example, a box outlining Washington's prowess in math but failure in spelling is placed mid-sentence, leaving readers to either abandon the sentence about his brother or flip back once it is read. The time lines are oriented horizontally, rather than vertically. The overall effect of these design choices detracts from the presentations. The "Who Was" series (Grosset & Dunlap) may be a better first choice for school libraries.-Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2011.
