Horn Book Review

These early-reader biographies offer simple narratives that touch on highlights of these (frequently covered) subjects' lives. Large font is surrounded by plenty of white space to aid emerging readers. The cartoonlike illustrations are slick but occasionally emotive; an appendix includes photographs and/or period paintings as well as contextual information. Timeline. [Review covers these I Can Read Book titles: Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and Martin Luther King Jr.] (c) Copyright 2019.
