" Excellent children's book and true story of a Hawaiian who competed several times in the Olympics, popularized surfing, and lived an exemplary life. Easy-to-read, with colorful illustrations and interesting facts. " said.

" Felt harder than plenty of early chapter books, but still seemed like a well done early biography. Again, I like the supplemental information in the back, and the fact that the authors didn't shy away from mentioning colonialism (even if they never used the word) and talking about how the Hawaiian language was almost lost and the US military deposed the last queen. " said.

"I really like this series of books even though the "Ready-to-Read" tag line is deceiving. The Mae Jemison book from this series comes in at a reading level of 5.5, and The Women Who Launched the Computer Age at 5.6. Since many adult novels come in at about 4.5, I don't know that I would hand these books to a first grader. They are perfect for struggling middle school readers, though, and the reading level there is perfect.

Wasn't as keen on the pictures in this, since they didn't seem to reflect the time period as well as they could have. Interesting topic, and a person children should know more about.
