Biographies in this format are easy to read and filled with wonderful illustrations that highlight important stages and times in the lives of the historical figures. Tom Crean and Mary Anning are perhaps not new to readers but there is plenty to discover in the pages of these biographies. They may have lived simply in their time but their contributions to the world have not been forgotten.

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
