School Library Journal - Sarah O'Holla

"Without watering down difficult-to-explain topics such as the horrors of slavery, these writers keep the tone and scope appropriate for a young audience. All of the biographies focus on the subjects’ childhoods, giving readers not only a person they can relate to but also the message that all great individuals were children once, too, thus reinforcing the idea that anyone can achieve greatness. Each title is illustrated in a different style, ranging from watercolor to pen and ink, and includes a photograph of the person on the first page. No sources are included. These books are excellent sources for first-time research projects, and they could help spark an interest in nonfiction that goes beyond encyclopedias or Web sites." - School Library Journal
