Common Knowledge



This very simple, attractively drawn life of Ella Fitzgerald would make a nice introduction to a very young future Ella fan.

I'm struggling to understand why the author thought Leonard Cohen, a man whose writings famously mingled spirituality and sensuality, would be a good subject for a book aimed at very young children.

Skip this one and let kids discover Cohen when they're old enough to appreciate his genius.

I really enjoyed this book by Little People Big World. Their books are sometimes hit or miss and this one was definitely a hit. I wish the book had gone over more of Usain Bolt‘s racing career. The tidbit about how he won his first race and how the prize was lunch was very interesting. I wasn’t even aware Bolt had officially retired from racing until reading this book. He made a name for himself and his country.

Simone was a wriggly busy girl with an interesting childhood. She discovered gymnastic while watching others and took her natural abilities to the highest level with good Olympic training and became the winner of many medals. But at one point the fame and expectations of other became too much to bear so she dropped out of competition for a while. When she felt ready, she returned to the limelight and was spectacular once again!
The illustrations are fun, simple, brilliantly colorful, and delightful.
Well suited for reading WITH someone of any age including ESL, and great for gifting to anyone, but especially to a school or your local public library!
I requested and received a free temporary e-book on Adobe Digital Editions from Quarto Publishing Group/Frances Lincoln Children's Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
