School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These slim series entries spotlight their subjects' contributions to the exploration and frontier periods of U.S. history. Each spread consists of an illustration on one page with large-print text on the other. Crockett clearly separates fact and legend by sharing the tall-tale aspects of the man's life in the first and last chapters with chronologically organized, informational chapters as the primary focus in between. In Sacagawea, the author details the woman's role in the Lewis and Clark expedition as well as her Shoshone background, early marriage, and family while making it clear that actual facts about her life are limited. Captioned, high-quality photographs and adequate-quality reproductions appear in both books. While David Adler's "Picture Book Biography" series (Holiday) presents similar material about these figures in a more narrative style, some students may find the short, succinct sections of these books easier to read and easier for information retrieval.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
