Dear Barbara,

I spent some time this week doing something I haven’t done in awhile … putting together a couple of ebooks. The first is
a reproduction of a vintage Mother Goose book, beautifully illustrated by the talented Frederick Richardson. The second is a nursery rhyme coloring book.
Here’s the scoop:

#3. Biographies

Biographies Printable (** for premium members only)

When researching biographies for school reports, it’s important to use a variety of resources. For most non-controversial subjects, I like starting with Wikipedia. ( http://www.wikipedia.org ) After that, I recommend stopping by the following biography sites.

BBC: History: Historic Figures
From John Adams (second President of the United States) to Georgi Zhukov ( World War II Soviet general), BBC houses an excellent alphabetic archive of biographies. Each biography is illustrated, and includes links to related pages, both onsite and off. New biographies are added monthly. Help them choose their next addition by clicking on “Suggest Historic Figure.” Beyond the biographies, there is always much to enjoy at the BBC site. Don’t miss their History for Kids section.

Biography.com: Bio4Kids
Although the children’s television series Bio4Kids is no longer running on the Biography channel, the companion website is still worth visiting. Biographies are found in “Meet the People.” Quizzes, games and videos round out the offering. For more biographies and a teacher’s classroom guide, visit the grownup Biography.com site. The main site also has features such as “Born on This Day” and sections dedicated to U.S. Presidents, Women’s History, Black History and Hispanic Heritage.

Bellington Public Schools: The Biography Maker
Chances are if you are a student, you will have to write a biography this year. Where do you start? What should you put in it? This unique site from the Bellington Public Schools takes you by the hand, and shows you how a great biography is made. “A great biography is driven by great questions. Boring questions produce boring answers. Boring answers put readers to sleep. Simple lists of facts are a bit like dry cereal . . .no milk . . . no fruit . . .no taste!”
