This review is from: Benjamin Banneker: Astronomer and Mathematician (Fact Finders Biographies: Great African Americans) (Paperback)
I purchased this book for my grandson. He read this book to learn about Benjamin Banneker for a research paper and presentation. He is 10 years old. This book provided facts and a timeline about Benjamin Banneker life. It is easy to read and understand. He got an A on both assignments. I would recommend this book to those who want the true facts without a lot of empty fillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who should you be like? Be like Benjamin Banneker, March 14, 2012
This review is from: Benjamin Banneker: Astronomer and Mathematician (Fact Finders Biographies: Great African Americans) (Paperback)
This is a very readable children's biography of the well-respected scientist Benjamin Banneker. His skills these days would make him an engineer -- surveying, mathematics, and inventiveness. Inspirational for children to study Black scientists.

There is a time line at the back of the book. Vocabulary is fairly easy and straightforward... some words like almanac, observation, prediction.

Terrific book about an interesting American.

This review is from: Benjamin Banneker: Astronomer and Mathematician (Fact Finders Biographies: Great African Americans) (Paperback)
I should have looked at the pages, it's a small book but it has GREAT information in it. I think it's a factoid book about Mr. Banneker and a must have for anyone trying to teach themselves or family about Great African Americans in this country.
