Gr 2-4--Two picture-book biographies. Holland begins with Mandela's childhood as the son of a Thembu chief and continues through his work for fair government for all people in South Africa, his imprisonment, to his release in 1990. There is little else about this world leader for this age group. Rosa Parks follows the same format: early life, civil rights work, imprisonment, and release. The information is much the same as in Eloise Greenfield's Rosa Parks (Crowell, 1973) and David A. Adler's A Picture Book of Rosa Parks (Holiday, 1993). Both of these books have a clear, direct writing style and are illustrated with colorful, attractive illustrations. Suitable additions.
