Full Text Reviews:
Booklist - 04/01/2013 This tidy little book hits all the high points of Jobs’ life, and does so in simple sentences and a large font, just right for new biography readers. Jobs’ early life, his entry into the world of computers, his work with Apple, and a survey of his inventions that changed everyday life are covered. Text appears on one page, faced by color photos. Even though many of the pictures are stock, they are bright and set on glossy paper. Fast facts appear at the bottom of some of the pages (“Steve’s father liked to fix up cars and sell them”). The book concludes, a bit oddly, with an original poem (“We owe so much to that little ‘i.’ / Imagine the world without it; just try!”), as well as a time line, glossary, and link to Scholastic’s website for further information. - Copyright 2013 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 04/01/2013 Gr 1–2—With simple text and colorful captioned images, these small-sized, introductions manage to pack in a lot of information about six people who have influenced history in very different ways. Short sentences, clear maps and time lines, "Fast Fact!" text boxes, and other nonfiction book features, such as glossaries with pronunciation guides, assist kids in learning facts without being overwhelmed. Large full-color and black-and-white photos and reproductions illustrate every spread. Each book also includes a poem about the subject and an inspirational section that encourages readers to think about helping others, becoming innovators, and getting involved in a handful of other pursuits that echo the achievements of the featured person. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
