Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The long-standing People in the News series offers well-researched, well-written books about people kids may be hearing about. The colorful design features plenty of photos, and, unlike the stock pictures seen in some series books, these look, for the most part, to have been carefully chosen. The ups and downs (some tragic) of the subject's life are sensitively covered in the thorough Jennifer Hudson. Readers get a real sense of Hudson and how her roots influenced who she is. The books in this series are not generically written; the authors each have a voice, which personalizes their subjects. Sidebars add additional information, and the source notes for quotes are quite welcome.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"
