I think this book is awesome! I like it because it gives a lot of details such as information about Walt Disneyís childhood. It gives facts that I didnít even know about. For example, I learned that his dreams all started out with a riding train he built. Once I picked it up, I didnít want to put it back down. It shows how Walt Disney grew up and how everything happened up to becoming one of the most famous people in America. It all started making animations, and then later he owned two of the most fun places in the world for kids to visit, Disneyland and Disney World. I think this book is just right for ages 8 and up. Who Was Walt Disney is a very interesting book, but I think every other book in the Who Was? Series is fascinating too!
I think second, third and fourth graders would really enjoy this book. If you like biographies that are not just a list of facts, but also a real story, I think you will probably enjoy this book a lot. I actually recommend all of the Who Was? series. Believe it or not, there is also a new series called What Was? I recommend those also. So, visit Barnes and Noble today!
