Meet New Friends: 10 Picture Book Biographies

Welcome in the New Year with new friends! You’ll meet the woman whose mathematical interests helped lead to the modern computer, share the excitement of a storm on Ferris’ original “observation” wheel, discover who started the first community center for the poor, and more fascinating life stories. Each of these books is not only well sourced (and documented), but also made to be shared by reading aloud. So open a book and curl up with a friend in hand on a cold January day.
