Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "What do a filmmaker, an astronaut, and two former First Ladies have in common? Their own entries in the History Maker Biographies series! In clipped sentences on the left, all set in large typeface, installments detail the birthplace, higher education, and major contributions of the figure in question. On the right, images range from lesser-known archival snapshots to familiar full-color photos. Neil Armstrong recounts the life of the legendary astronaut. A licensed pilot by age 16, Armstrong helmed the world's first moon landing, in 1969. Though the concise language can occasionally feel abrupt particularly in the books' page-length conclusions appended time lines, glossaries, and online extras will jump-start reflection. A natural fit for trailblazers-to-be.--Shemroske, Briana Copyright 2018 Booklist"
