"Read it!" - by danilicio2020
Historically relevant, engaging, and emotional. Hidden Figures is a "must read" for the teachers of math, sciences, and social studies. The book brings tons of details that had to be left out from the movie. I would recommend the reading to students in grades 5 through 12.

"Interesting, encouraging, great illustrations" - by hightech
This story is a factual account of a young boy's search for a way to help his village. His interest in windmills to generate electricity led him to his community llibrary where he researched the idea. I liked the way the story leads the reader from problem, to idea, to research, to solution, and finally extension. In education, teachers want young students to be able to do all of these steps: recognize, define, apply, evaluate, design, extend. All the lessons are incorporated in one story! The fact that this inventor was so young also helps students to realize that you don't have to be famous, rich, highly educated, or an adult to do something of great importance. The cultural part of the story suggests to students that not everyone has the advantages that we, as Americans, are able to enjoy, such as having water ... full review

"I'm touched" - by Honey M. (Illinois)
I can't write much right now. I'm crying and I don't want to stop right now. It just seems right.

THAT is how amazing this book is. I usually write about how talented THIS author is, how she makes me actually become the characters. I speak of her uncanny ability to make me feel their feelings, see life through their eyes.

Today, I simply say that I felt it in my heart. For that, I'm grateful to her. She made me believe.

Catherine Ryan Hyde, thank you. I will.

"INSPIRING!!! Her courage is exalting!" - by Bonnie Graham
Brought this book for my two young great nieces. One lives in Florida and the other one lives in Kansas. They are both avid readers and even though they are both still in elementary school, they read at a 7th grade level. Both young ladies love the performing arts, also. I felt that their book collections would not be complete without this book by Misty Copeland on a shelf. Both nieces have called to thank me. So have their parents. One has already started reading it and keep texting me whenever she get to an amazing part in Misty life. She wishes every girl in her class had the book. She say it is inspiring and young girls of all races should read it.

"Wonderful story" - by shopper7 (Fairfax, VA)
I read this book along with my son who was assigned it for summer reading. It was immediately engaging. I felt a bond with the author. Not only does my son attend the same schools that Craig did here in Virginia, but my son-in-law was deployed to the same regions in Afghanistan as a dog handler. When he returned from his tour, he had the same experience with bad dreams, and would jump at any loud noise. Thankfully, time and fellow marines seem to help heal most wounds. He is also from a small town outside of Pittsburgh like Justin, and until this past season, we Caps fans had to tolerate his Penguin jabs. But, most importantly, we have a small white dog with a goofy smile who spins, dances and races through the house when we come home. Thanks, Craig for sharing your story with us and thanks ... full review

"I enjoyed this book for the glimpse into India and the ..." - by KNish
I enjoyed this book for the glimpse into India and the anticipation of when and how he would find his family. It is appropriate for younger audience but I'm not sure it would keep their attention. Saroo did a great job telling his story but the writing does not read smoothly at times.

"Exciting, Educational, and Easy to read aloud to kids" - by BabyWrangler (FL, USA)
I learned about this series when my 5 year old son picked up a set at Costco and another mom walked over to recommend them. I bought the set at Costco and we enjoyed it so much I quickly ordered this set from Amazon. The books are exciting, with interesting illustrations, and have been a great introduction to chapter books for our family. My kids get so into the story, I've been able to start and finish each book in one sitting (my kids aren't reading chapter books themselves yet). It takes about 30 minutes for me to read through the story out loud, stopping to peruse the pictures. These stories stick with the kids. For example, we reenacted the dinosaur scenes in our yard, with each of us playing a different part. I also took the opportunity to point out a magnolia tree in our neighborhood to them, after ... full review

"Good info great value" - by Rhonda Garcia (Castro Valley, CA United States)
This book was purchased for my 2nd graders for book reports. Our school emphasizes reading so they are above state averages. This book is nice for 2nd and 3rd grades for public school. The text and pictures are interesting for young readers. The quality of the paperback book is good. Sometimes, easy biographies do not carry enough information. This series does. The Penguin Young Readers are good for book reports. I have a few. I would purchase more.

This is a great beginning reader book. My 7 year old daughter reads at GHIJ level, depending on the book and she reads this smoothly.
