Booklist Review

Gr. 4-7. Volumes in the Library of American Lives and Times series portray the lives and work of significant figures in American history. With fairly large type and many illustrations, the pages look inviting, and the texts are substantial. Patrick Henry tells the story of the notable Virginian's contributions to the cause of American independence, the direction of the new nation, and the governance of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Marquis de Lafayette introduces the French nobleman who became a hero of the American Revolution but faced many tribulations after returning to France. The well-chosen illustrations, many in color, include reproductions of period paintings, engravings, maps, and documents, as well as a few contemporary photographs of significant sites. There are no source notes, even for quotations, but the back matter includes a chronology, a glossary, and lists of books and Web sites, and photo credits. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-This title (Rosen, 2002) by Amy and John Kukla presents the details of Patrick Henry's life beginning with his childhood and early education, and spanning over the course of his lifetime, from his early businesses to his career as a politician. The focus, however, is on his role as governor of Virginia and the contributions he made toward the shaping and emergence of a new nation. This volume is arranged chronologically in 15 short chapters. In a few instances, the information presented feels a bit disjointed or difficult to follow because of a shifting back and forth between events or the insertion of a past event with what is currently under discussion. Benjamin Becker delivers an expressive and lively narration. Book notes are preceded by a series of tones and presented in a different voice. A timeline is included at the conclusion of the audiobook. An absorbing, brief introduction to one of our founding fathers.- Mary Oluonye, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
