About this title

Synopsis:

DK Biography sets a new standard in children's paperback books, relying on bold photographs, energetic storytelling, and detailed sidebars and definition boxes to build an educational and entertaining series. These books are perfect for either the classroom or the living room. Each title features a celebrated leader who has impacted our world in a big way, from important politicians to inspiring civil rights leaders, great entertainers to groundbreaking artists. These men and women come from a diverse range of nationalities and generations, but all have played a crucial role in shaping our society. DK Biographies gain momentum from detail, delving into the small things — childhood hobbies, little known fears, hidden strengths — that make a person great. Most importantly, they encourage young readers to be curious about the world and those who have influenced it.

Nelson Mandela was the first black president of South Africa, and spent 27 years in prison in his fight against apartheid. His life is a shocking, stunning, and heroic story of the struggle for freedom in a divided society, and an inspiring example of one individual's power to bring peace to a nation.

Supports the Common Core State Standards.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9–These biographies are detailed but flawed. The chronologically arranged chapters cover major events in the men's lives, such as Growing up in Gujarat (Gandhi) and Acts of Defiance (Mandela). Numerous interesting photos and illustrations are included. Unfortunately, both books contain errors, such as incomplete Web site addresses in the Works Cited sections and incorrect quotes. Pretoria, where Gandhi lived for a year, is omitted from the map of South Africa, and the reason given for Mandela's separation from his first wife is not the same as that given in his autobiography. For books on Gandhi, stick with John B. Severance's Gandhi: Great Soul (Clarion, 1997). Most titles on Mandela for this audience aren't any better than this one.–Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
