The more pages I turned, the more I loved this book. At first I was worried it was another attempt to make a biography for children that would be too long and too dry to hold the attention of young children. And for preschoolers it might be too long. However, for children 5 and up, this is a wonderful book. The illustrations are engaging and have little quotes from the character that are more than just repeats of the text-but they work with the illustrations so they are not distracting. The text itself would be easy for children to understand, and enjoy especially kiddos who want to learn, like nonfiction, or want a true story.

I would not use this as a read-a-loud for a young group, unless you skipped some pages and essentially shortened the story. That being said I think it would be a wonderful read aloud in an elementary school, or even middle school, or as a bedtime story to a small group who are able to sit though a book with a little more than the usual number of pages. This would be a great introduction to biographies, and nonfiction.
