Summary

Summary

Here is a series for students challenged with one of their most typical assignments: write a book report on a book of 100 pages or more. Each Book Report Biography tells the story of a significant person from the past (from politics, science, or the arts) or present (some of today's hottest celebrities and sports heroes).

Booklist Review

Gr. 5^-8. The series name, Book Report Biographies, is clear about the primary audience for these short, useful books, but they are also fun to read, and some students may go on from here to Russell Freedman's Eleanor Roosevelt (1993) and Corinne Szabo's Sky Pioneer: A Photobiography of Amelia Earhart [BKL F 15 97]. Gottfried's biography is not as eloquent as his book on James Baldwin (1997), but he does a good job of discussing the drama of Eleanor Roose-velt's personal and public life. Parr shows that Earhart was famous not only because of her mysterious disappearance but also because of her achievements as a feminist and aviation pioneer. The occasional pictures are small and indistinct, with none of the style of the photobiographies; in fact, the price of these slim volumes seems steep. Both books include a bibliography and chronology; in addition, Parr provides chapter notes and Internet resources. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-9‘An objective, easy-to-read biography. Gottfried describes his subject in short, well-organized chapters and smoothly integrates quotes from Roosevelt and other primary sources into the text. Average-quality black-and-white photos appear throughout. Students who require more in-depth information should look to Sharon Whitney's Eleanor Roosevelt (Watts, 1982; o.p.), which reports more details about her later years, and Michael A. Schuman's Eleanor Roosevelt (Enslow, 1995), which has better quality photo reproductions and a superior cover portrait.‘Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
