Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-This is a competently written biography of an exceptional child star of the 1930s whose movies are still enjoyed by many viewers today. Although the emphasis is on Temple's film career, her later life is also briefly covered, including her bout with breast cancer and her work as an ambassador. Color photos clearly capture this smiling celebrity. This book might provide inspiration and interesting reading for young hopefuls in the performing arts, and there is enough information for short reports.

Format: Hardcover
John Bankston's Shirley Temple appeared some time ago but deserves ongoing mention as a rare biography of the child actress geared to grades 3-4. Plenty of books on Shirley reach adult audiences: this 32-page title is a delight for kids who want to read about a notable successful child star. There could be more illustrations, but the value here is the information which is suitable for a report.

My daughter is in 6th grade and was doing a biography report/project on Shirley Temple. Most of the books on the market are gigantic. Her teacher informed her to get a smaller book on Shirley. We found this one and it worked perfectly! My daughter loved it. Great pictures and easy to read and understand.

This is a biography of the famous 30's child starlet Shirley Temple. The book is nicely bounded and divided into 5 chapters.

Ch 1..Discovery
Ch 2..Baby Star
Ch 3..Star!
Ch 4..Uncle Billy
Ch 5..So This is Growing Up

There is a Chronology section that covers the years between 1938 and 2002. There is also a Selected Filmography section that covers her movies between 1932 and 1949.

Nice biography of Shirley Temple for the youngsters with 8 colored photos and an easy-going writing style.
