Summary: This is an elementary school biography of Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and African-American woman, journalist, and anti-lynching activist.

Response: This is a good primary grade biography; it tells the general outline of her life with a grade-level-appropriate amount of details. It defines difficult terms (such as lynching) well, making it meaningful to younger audiences. There are some good non-fiction text features, such as chapters, photographs with captions, a timeline, and a glossary.
