Engaging Bio for Kids
I enjoyed hearing the stories of their childhoods and this fast-paced overview of their lives. It was also refreshing to hear about some of their challenges growing up, and that they weren't clearly destined for greatness to those who knew them.
It was an entertaining story of some of my favorite musicians and got my kids more excited in their music.
Not really an applicable question to nonfiction, but I will say that the narrator was engaging and lively, though not particularly memorable.
It is a short book and one you could easily get through in one sitting. I think it took us two sittings to get through due to schedule, but there was certainly no desire to pause it. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I recommend this whole series, especially for late elementary kids. The sort of thing they listen to for fun but also learn something.
