Review quote

"A lot of effort went into National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Who to make it beautiful, to make it relevant, and to make it something a child would want to read (or be read to) multiple times. Every entry is more than a biography; for example, King Tut is used to introduce Howard Carter, the archeologist who discovered Tut's sarcophagus. The reader is presented with not only with Carter's biography but also with a map and ancient Egyptian history." -- New York Journal Of Books "This book was written and designed with a young audience in mind. Accessible writing, beautiful illustrations, and a navigable organization make this title a first choice when seeking out information about famous people, past and present." -- Asheville Citizen-Times "This colorful, oversize book features concise but engaging bios of some of the world's most well-known artists, inventors, scientists, explorers, and human-rights leaders." -- The HornBook
