Biografía breve
Kathleen Krull's neighbors knew her as a quiet person with noisy habits, such as playing Bach, Joplin, and Satie on the piano with the windows open. As a child she enjoyed practicing piano, organ, violin, viola, and guitar, and she went on to study music at Northwestern University, the North Shore School of Music, and Lawrence University. These days, when she is not writing or swimming, she likes to tend her vegetable garden, eat popcorn, and investigate the quirky lives of her favorite musicians, authors, and neighbors. She does all of these things at her home in San DiegoCalifornia where she lives with her husband. [adapted from Lives of the Musicians (1993)]



I read the first few pages. The writing is delightfully cheeky at times ("he became the king of the snappy soundbite, always bemused, sort of cuddly, with soulful eyes") and very readable. The author's tone is conversational. Occasional illustrations don't add much, but don't hurt either.

134 pages, with a list of sources and a pretty robust index (there's an entry for the Large Hadron Collider!).

The other books in this series (Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Isaac Newton, and Freud) have been well-reviewed and I can see why.… (más)

Vibrant art, and an inspiring woman of Wilma's journey to overcome polio to become the first woman to win 3 gold medals in a single Olympics.

Outstandingly accurate account of Cesar Chavez's life. Yuyi Morales does it again with illustrations so warm and full of emotion that tell half of the story along with Krull's words. This story hits close to home for many of my students and I feel good about reading it to them because of its accuracy.

As a woman and someone who prides herself on knowing American history, I am ashamed to admit that I had no idea who Frances Perkins was. But to discover that she was the first female cabinet member (under FDR and labor department) and the woman responsible for the Civilian Conversation Corps and social security (public policies that frankly, I feel always get attributed to a man--FDR)..I was stunned. This woman was sweet, kind, and compassionate. She never sought to domineer a man. She just wanted to make a difference wherever she could in. In her words:

"The door might not be opened to a woman again for a long, long, time. And I had a kind of duty to walk in and sit down in the chair that was offered."

THIS is true feminism. People associate it with radicalism. But it was far from that. Instead we have a woman who was terrified of speaking in public yet when it mattered most, to people she cared about and those underrepresented....she did it. What a role model!
