I really like this book, besides this thin volume of book. it has lots of information. Rather than biographies with thick volume, this book is the opposite and it has so much information, really save a lot of time.

Read while getting ready to teach my seventh and eighth grade classes how to read biography. This was a very well written story and I think the students will get a lot out of it.
