It was so exciting for the school library to be able to support the second grade Biography Museum because picture book biographies are my jam! As such, the biography section of our library is one of the strongest parts of our collection. Juvenile biographies are great reads across the grade levels and introduce our children to mentors across time and space: artists and innovators, scientists and explorers, athletes and entertainers, leaders and peacemakers. And for every great person, there is a great book! Here is just a small, small sampling of the amazing celebrities represented (over 60 kids participated!) and a link to a related book...all of which you can request at the school library!
Neil Armstrong and Scott Kelly
Malala Yousafzai, Judge Judy Sheindlin and Sally Ride
Some author nobody's ever heard of
