School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Very basic facts are presented in simply, clearly written volumes appropriate for those just starting out on introductory biographies. Two to four sentences per page face a generally good quality color or black-and-white photo; unfortunately, the images aren't captioned. The large, bold black typeface is surrounded by ample white space, making for comfortable reading; words defined in glossaries are set off in gray type. These information-packed titles will help readers understand why these individuals are important and appreciate their contributions to society. VERDICT These will successfully fit the bill for those in need of easy-to-read biographies. © Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Horn Book Review

This biography series for new readers highlights five iconic figures from modern history in stilted (though easy-to-digest) texts that do not provide the depth of understanding required to appreciate their accomplishments. Large, well-chosen photographs on wide-trim spreads add most of the interest; an appended timeline basically repeats the main text. Glos., ind. [Review covers the following History Maker Biographies titles: Jane Goodall, Malala Yousafzai, Martin Luther King Jr., Pope Francis, and Walt Disney.] (c) Copyright 2015.
