Recommends it for: kids/Deaf culture junkies
I had to read this for work...the grade level's lower than my norm, but it has some interesting bios in it. (Like Goya the artist. Who knew?) Cute if you *really* want to learn about some famous folks in D/deaf history...but there's a little too much conjecture for my taste.
