     Bunking the notion that history is dull, these titles in the Show Me History! series convey the lives of notable historical figures through colorful and spirited cartoons. The young narrators are Libby, an African American "Lady Liberty," and Sam, a white, patriotically attired teen who will one day be known as "Uncle Sam." The books’ conversational tone, with occasional surprises and humorous exchanges, describe the high and low points of each figure and his or her impact on American history. In addition, color-coded speech balloons and stylized fonts reflect actual quotes and writings. Abraham Lincoln recounts the numerous setbacks and rivalries Lincoln experienced on the road to the presidency and during the Civil War. Alexander Hamilton relates how Hamilton’s childhood experiences influenced his service under General George Washington during the American Revolution and how he helped found a new nation, creating a national bank, for example. Amelia Earhart documents the aviator’s record-setting firsts, her role as a feminist, and how her disappearance continues to turn out new facts and conspiracy theories. Martin Luther King Jr. traces how this civil rights activist fought for racial equality through nonviolent messages and protests. Each biography concludes with a round-up of related individuals, a time line, a glossary, and a list of resources. This series makes history approachable and engaging, especially for reluctant readers.
