School Library Journal - Michelle Obama

K-Gr 2–These short, simple biographies are written in the first person and include brief facts about the individual and their work. With only a few sentences on each page, the text is highly accessible to the youngest of readers, though there are, on occasion, challenging words or concepts that may need further explanation. For example, the biography about Michelle Obama begins, “My name is Michelle Obama. I was born in Chicago, Illinois. It was 1964. This was the middle of the civil rights movement.” Boldface words and phrases are included in a glossary at the end of the book. The artwork is a combination of candy-colored illustrations and photographs that spotlight the individual. VERDICT Colorful and with an appealing layout, these biographies are fine choices for many libraries.
