Review
(The following is a combined review for Booker T. Washington: Great American Educator; Cesar Chavez: Fighting for Farmworkers; Eleanor Roosevelt: First Lady of the World; and Elizabeth Cady Stanton: Women’s Rights Pioneer) Gr 2-6 –Readable and inviting, these beginning biographies serve as good basic introductions to these individuals. A yellow background is used to set apart text that is a direct quotation from a primary source, allowing readers to distinguish it from the fictional dialogue and the narration. The “Internet Sites” section leads readers to where they can enter a book code to get a list of relevant sites. While not outstanding, the art is engaging and bright, and the format will appeal to graphic-novel fans as well as reluctant readers searching for a simple biography.–Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Library, UT --Deanna Romriell (Reviewed March 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 3, p250)
