School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-These attractive titles each feature six women who have had an impact in their fields. Many names will be familiar but each book also includes some women who are less well known. The biographies, generally three to five pages in length, are divided into sections that discuss each woman's "Early Years," "Developing Skills," and "Accomplishments." Sidebars, "Key Events," "Quick Notes," and boxed quotes provide additional facts and background. Each book concludes with brief notes about the contributions of 13 to 15 other women. An abundance of appealing black-and-white and full-color photographs and occasional maps and drawings illustrate the text. Although these books do not include the detailed information found in the "American Profiles" series (Facts On File), they will be useful for short reports or to supplement other resources.-Ann M.
