School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-These books offer a good combination of concise text and full-color illustrations that seem a perfect fit for this age group. Lutz describes her subject's boyhood in Scotland when, as a 13-year-old, he set out to sea, eventually settling in America, and concludes with Jones's attempt to fight for the Russian navy and his death at age 45. Betsy Ross receives equal attention from Miller, who traces her life from Quaker seamstress to the creator of the most recognized symbol of the new nation. She admits that Ross's claim to fame is questioned by some but concludes that whatever the truth, common people helped out in the War for Independence and made a difference. Both books have lists for further reading, but no sources are cited. Additional titles for biography sections.-Carol Fazioli, formerly at The Brearley School, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
