Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3–6—Information abounds in these glossy, colorful, engaging volumes. Each book starts with a "Find the Truth!" section, which presents readers with two statements and encourages them to figure out which one is true by the end of the book (a great way to interest them). Facts boxes pop up everywhere-even on the covers and in the tables of contents. The narratives are interesting, accessible, and divided into clearly labeled sections. While highlighting achievements, the books also candidly touch on negative aspects of the subjects' lives, such as Bill Clinton's "relationship with another woman" and the fact that Steve Jobs "usually smelled bad" in the 1970s because he didn't shower. Colorful and black-and-white captioned photos, time lines, a "True Statistics" section, and other helpful features supplement the texts. A solid, entertaining, and informative series.
