School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Both biographies have minimal fictionalization of conversation and emotion. Although Kent's portrayal of these women is idealistic and simplified, the texts are fluid and appropriate for the target audience. Each book contains full-page sidebars that explain relevant topics, for example, "Doctors Then and Now" (Blackwell) and "Vaudeville Theater" (Keller). "Interesting Facts" appear in the margins. Some explain the text, while others are merely trivia. Average-quality photographs, mostly in black and white, illustrate both titles. Solid choices for report writers.-Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
