These brief biographies are written to pique a reader's interest...an excellent quality in a young adult book.
The writing is lively...the illustrations evocative.
This book recognizes some of the heroic people we couldn't do without.
Erin Mindell, age 12, Content Communications
This worthwhile book...could be shared with the class easily because each story takes about ten minutes to read aloud. What a nice book to use with units on civil rights, discrimination, and American history.
