    Again, this is a terrific book. I reviewed book one in this series and my comments there would apply to this book as well. There are only a few differences between each book in this series.The biographies in book three are approximately two pages long and there are a few more questions for each biography. Book one is only 96 pages; book three is 136 pages.These are terrific books. I enjoyed them simply for the biographical information they contain. Author Carol Einstein focuses not on the commonly portrayed heroes and heroines (Ben Franklin, Abe Lincoln, etc.), but instead she has chosen to highlight the lives of people who youve most likely never heard of. There are a few people youll know, but for the most part, she has preserved the history of some less-than-well-known people who have amazing stories deserving to be shared.
