Gr 6 Up--Visually appealing, well-researched biographies that adequately cover the life, accomplishments, and significance of each subject and entertain as they inform. The texts are easy to read and do not use fictionalized dialogue. An encyclopedia would provide similar facts, but these books add anecdotes to make the people come alive. Appropriately placed boxes with attractive borders quote the subjects' writings or other peoples' opinions of them. This technique introduces young readers to primary and secondary sources in a nonthreatening manner. Sharp, well-chosen, black-and-white photographs enrich each page. Useful, well-organized additions.
