"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

"The elementary reading level makes this a great book for classroom or library resources."

Children's Literature

". . . a very well written book that will relate well to many young readers."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2009

"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

". . . useful in introducing the idea of biography to young independent readers."
