SLJ Review of Bearport Biographies

These six volumes provide an eclectic mix of notable personages. Each book begins with a description of a significant moment in the subject’s life: Michael Jordan winning the 1991 NBA championship, Jimmy Carter’s acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize, John Lewis’ speech at the 1963 March on Washington, etc. Then readers learn about when and where each person was born and where they attended college. Careers are traced with an emphasis on big moments: Christina Koch was a part of the first all-female spacewalk team, America Ferrera achieved success as an actress, and Michelle Obama promoted projects as first lady, including her “Let’s Move!” initiative. Nice, colorful photographs complement the texts. None of these biographies particularly stands out, however, and most of these luminaries are the subjects of numerous other books for kids. Still, the information is current, and those needing up-to-date biographies on these individuals will find them useful. VERDICT Standard biographical fare, these volumes will be of value to libraries that maintain current information on the subjects and should be considered based on demand.
