This series of biographies is very popular at our school. Jane Sutcliffe is one of our favorite author presenters. She lives near us in Connecticut and visits with primary source materials to show our students how she conducts her research and how they might also find primary sources to use when researching. This series is appropriate for students in grades 3-5, including timelines, websites, and suggested readings. The format for all of her biographies is the same, which makes them useful for group or whole class instruction. The photographs with captions are informative and engaging, with entertaining and unusual facts.

Gr 3-5, Ever wondered who was the man behind the Hershey's chocolate bar? Milton Hershey was a maker, an inventor, an experimenter and above all else, he was an optimist. Born to a strict hardworking Mennonite mother, and big dreamer father in Pennsylvania, Hershey had inherited two traits that would make him famous for his chocolate: a work ethic and an imagination. When in the end, after making a fortune on his chocolate bars and kisses, Hershey gave all of his savings to the boarding school he had founded for orphans, The Milton Hershey School. In this biography of Milton Hershey, his life flows nicely over the pages, making use of primary resources that help enrich the information. However, some photographs appear on pages where they are not referenced, causing some breaks to the over flow of information. The text also includes table of contents, photographs and captions, an index, a timeline of Hershey's life, a brief summary about The Milton Hershey School, other related resources to check out. This is definitely a read for those with a sweet tooth! ( )
