Beginner Biographies - School Library Journal

This aptly named set has a consistent, clean layout: spreads feature brief text on one page, with a full-color illustration opposite. Martin Luther King’s and Abraham Lincoln’s assassinations are handled with age-appropriate text and illustrations that are somber, but not scary, and include no weapons or violence. The texts are large and easy to read. The set will fit the bill for students who are reading independently.

Illustrator: Marty Martinez
