I'm rating this four stars because it is a well written biography for children, although I'm not sure how many 11 year old kids would actually pick Walt Whitman as the subject for study. It included a lot of excerpts from his poetry and letters, as well as many photographs. Adults might prefer to read Walt Whitman's America by David Reynolds. Much more meat.
