Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 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

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By M. Heiss on February 11, 2011
Format: Paperback
Not every child likes biographies - this one may please a child who would be reluctant to pick up a straight-text biography. (It is a graphic biography, like a comic book, so be sure your child's teacher sees it and gives it an ok before the report is due!)

This book packs a lot into a very few pages - the images do a lot to convey the information. Goes into the controversy with W.E.B. DuBois, and it is clear and understandable.

Most of all, what comes through loud and clear is the dignity of work and the importance of education.

People risked their lives, worked and struggled to get an education; nowadays kids shrug off what is given to them. This book may set them thinking.
