READING BIOGRAPHIES OF FAMOUS PEOPLE

READING BIOGRAPHIES OF FAMOUS PEOPLE
By
Linda M. Penn
 
            If you suggest to your youngsters to read a biography of someone famous, you might get a quizzical look of  “why?” reason being a lot of kids associate biography reading and boring in the same thought.  Most biography reading happens in a school setting starting at around Grade 3, in connection with multiple projects associated with the book.  Therefore, it might be difficult to convince your youngsters to pick out biographies using their holiday gift cards from the local bookstore!
 
            Biography reading, however, can be fun and stimulating, if the person chosen by the child is interesting to the child.  Herein lies another problem – in the past, biography authors have chosen political leaders as their top subjects for writing.  This means less books written about women, Native Americans, African Americans, and other minorities.  Hopefully, changes have been made by today’s biography writers.
 
            I still strongly suggest to parents, grandparents, and teachers to review the biography before presenting it to the child.  Look for:
 
1)    author references to original works of the famous person, like, diaries, journals, letters, photos.
2)    Childhood stories that contain humor and/or how the person handled problems.
3)    Inspiration for your child to start a new hobby, desire to achieve greatness or make a better world.
4)    Avoiding biographies that paint the people as unrealistic heroes, worthy of “hero-worship” by your child.  Instead, looking for biographies that show real like people, with their faults, flaws, warts, and all.
 
          In doing Internet research on biographies for children, I came across a website that contained ideas and suggestions for using biographies with kids:
 
 
            Let me know, adults, what you think, and I would love to know what your kiddos think!
Next month – USING REALISTIC FICTION AND BIOGRAPHIES = ENJOYMENT! 
            Best wishes for a super 2015 and I hope one of your resolutions is to read more!  Happy reading and God bless.
