Biographies for Little People

Vintage e-books

There are two types of books here.  First are the biographical compilations, books that cover the lives of several different people. After this come the individual biographies, usually more suited to older children than little ones. From statesmen to soldiers, scientists to musicians, artists to pioneers, this selection manages to skim the surface of the vast number of biographies available.
