Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most famous couple in Wisconsin politics, “Fighting Bob” La Follette and his wife, Belle Case La Follette, come to life in the pages of the newest addition to the Badger Biographies series for young readers.  The father of “Progressive politics,” Bob La Follette was famous for digging in his heels when it came to reforming government corruption. He also gained a reputation for fiery speeches on the campaign trail and on the Senate floor. Belle La Follette was political in her own right. The first woman to graduate from the University of Wisconsin’s Law School, she was an advocate for world peace and an agitator for the women’s vote. She was also Bob’s most trusted political advisor. Together, the couple raised a family and fought for the changes they believed would make the world a better place

Synopsis:

A Recipe for Success: Lizzie Kander and her Cookbook celebrates the life of Milwaukee's early twentieth-century culinary wonder. This new addition to the Badger Biographies series will introduce young readers to a remarkable young woman who made a difference in the lives of the early immigrants in Wisconsin. Kander originally created The Settlement Cookbook to assist young Jewish immigrant girls in cooking nutritious "American-style" meals for their families. Since its publication, several generations of household cooks have been raised on the delicious recipes of the cookbook. Proceeds from the sale of the original cookbook helped build Milwaukee's first settlement house and later the city's Jewish Community Center. The century-old cookbook is still in print today. This is a delightful biography, filled with humorous asides, wonderful period illustrations, and of course recipes!

Synopsis:

Born with developmental disabilities and raised in an institution and foster care, Cindy Bentley has learned to live independently, helped to start a disability advocacy organization, and has been a spokesperson for Special Olympics International.

Synopsis:

This anecdote-filled account of Wright's life and work also introduces young readers to basic concepts in architecture. In it, we see how lessons learned from boyhood adventures—and more than a few personal setbacks—were part of the story of one of the world’s leading architects. Drawings and photographs, maps, a glossary, timeline, and reading activities are also included.
