"Readers are introduced to the father of the Cherokee written language in this easy-to-read biography."

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2010

"The language is simple, both in sentence structure and vocabulary . . . these are fair nonfiction choices to have in a primary-grade reading corner or to use with slightly older ESL students."

School Library Journal, February 2010

"In this beginner reader series, famous Americans, most of whom might not be familiar to this young audience, are the focus of these biographical titles. Lots of interesting details support the need for these easy reading four-chapter books that cover the subject's childhood and span their adult life . . . Since all of the books are set up in the same manner, they make for a fascinating and appealing series for young readers."

Library Media Connection, January/February 2010
