Gr 1–3—Filled with easy-to-read texts and lots of
photos, these books are the perfect way to introduce nonfiction
at an early age. The large font and simpler vocabulary make
Amelia Earhart an exciting and unintimidating choice for children
just starting to read on their own. The pages are colorful and
eye-catching, and small "in her own words" bubbles offer a true
look into the life of this historical figure. Anne Frank is for
more fluent readers. The vocabulary is more challenging, which
suits the subject matter since it is definitely for older
children. The volume is also packed with colorful photos that
give a broad picture of where and when the child was living.
Sections from her diary comprise the "in her own words" bubbles.
Maps, time lines, and glossaries work well with the information
provided to give readers a basic but fairly full overview of the
subjects.—Carol Hirsche, Provo City Library, UT
