These true stories contain lots of wonderful photographs, and interesting information about people who have changed the way we live today. The authors introduce the reader to famous people and are able to capture the feelings of discovery, love, sadness and achievement in such a magnificent way that students can't put the books down. In fact, students who read these books wanted to read more selections from this series...Students in our fundamental level literacy program found this material wonderful for personal recreational reading. In their evaluations, students liked the photos, the true stories and learning about the lives of interesting and famous people. Also, these books generated lots of interest and enthusiasm when used by students for classroom discussion. Some students wanted more information abot Marie Curie and Albert Einstein. As a result, this thirst for more knowledge led them to the college library where they researched and gathered more information that they brought back to the classroom to share with their classmates...We will use this material to design structured individual and group learning activities that develop students
