School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-These basic biographies present clear pictures of their subjects, their accomplishments, and their legacies: Malcolm X as a civil rights activist, Ralph Bunche as a U.N. peacemaker, and Charles Drew as a medical pioneer. The individuals are all shown in a positive light. Crushshon gives a fair account of Malcolm X without negating some difficult times and racial viewpoints that were part of his life. Well-designed, the layouts are clean and uncluttered; the bordered sepia-toned photographs are of above-average quality.-Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI (c) Copyright 2010.

Horn Book Review

Reluctant readers may appreciate the large typeface, wide margins, and plentiful photographs (in both sepia and full color) that the volumes in this series offer. But those looking for well-rounded biographical accounts will be disappointed that the flatly written books provide only sketchy personal information about the subjectsÆ lives. Time lines are included. There are four other fall 2001 books in this series. Bib., glos., ind. [Review covers these Journey to Freedom titles: [cf2]Malcolm X, W. C. Handy, Dr. Charles Drew, Thurgood Marshall[cf1].] (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
