More Biographies for Young Readers

Great biographies for young readers from Lone Star Signers!

One of Goodreads’ most helpful features is the “related books/recommendations.” Whenever the girls and I stumble across a great book at the library, we like to follow up with similar books.

After enjoying fantastic biographies about Roget, artist Horace Pippin, and poet William Carlos Williams by Jen Bryant and illustrator Melissa Sweet earlier this year, we recently read Brave Girl: Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers’ Strike of 1909 (also illustrated by Sweet).

I love to read biographies in a picture book format because the author and illustrator work so closely together to bring the time period to life! Here are a few other juvenile biographies that we have really been enjoying:

  1. Who Says Women Can’t Be Doctors? (Elizabeth Blackwell)
  2. Miss Moore Thought Otherwise (Anne Carroll Moore, librarian)
  3. The Boy Who Loved Math (Paul Erdos)
  4. Manfish (Jacques Cousteau)
  5. Noah Webster and His Words
