ALA Booklist
The reliable and accessible Rookie Biographies series has added several noteworthy names to its ranks. In the realm of children's literature, Maurice Sendak reveals how the beloved writer and illustrator challenged the status quo by creating empowering stories where kids confronted feelings of anger and fear. Designed with primary-school readers in mind, these books utilize large fonts, ample white space, and liberal illustrations, which range from historical documents and artwork to modern photographs. All the books are prefaced with a map showing where each person was born or lived and conclude with a short poem summarizing his life, creative-writing or critical-thinking prompts, and a time line. Excellent introductions to some important figures in history and at work today.
