About this title

Synopsis:

This popular, best-selling biography series has been expanded and completely redesigned with new features to draw in reluctant readers. Today’s Superstars takes readers behind the headlines for a close-up look at the most popular stars from music, movies, television, and sports. Titles are selected from survey results of more than 1,000 kids. Each high-interest book in the series details the star’s early life and inspirations, rise to stardom, and impact on the world of sports or entertainment.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5–These titles share a similarly pleasant, sometimes conversational, writing style. They highlight difficulties the subjects have overcome and describe some of the positive aspects of their personal lives and careers. For instance, Rihanna's experience with an abusive boyfriend is used as a positive teaching opportunity, and that book's further-reading list includes the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline's website address. Similarly, the other titles relate how Jeter had to overcome prejudice due to his mixed racial heritage, Smith nearly went bankrupt after his first album became a success, and Manning has had to compete with and be compared to his successful older brother and dad. Family love and support are emphasized along with the need for hard work and dedication. Charitable work is also included. The books are enlivened by clear, color photographs. “True or False” questions are interspersed throughout, with answers given at the end.
