Fun way to learn about a person who made history
Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2015
I bought this because I already own several books in this series and I have enjoyed them. I really like the variety of people represented. The chapters are short and there are illustrations on most pages, so the books can be read quickly. There are segments throughout each book that highlight people and events that impacted the person being studied. For instance, this book includes a brief summary of the major martial arts and a description of Chinatowns in the United States. There are two timelines at the back of each book. One timeline lists major events in the life of the person and the other timeline lists important events that took place in the world during the person’s life. I have children who have been learning martial arts for several years and we wanted to learn more about someone who was one of the masters. We enjoyed reading this biography together. These books provide a great introduction to people who changed the world.
