This biography is very easy to read, esp. since it's in graphic format. It had quite a bit of information, and the pictures were very appropriate for a young audience. I was disappointed that the graphics of her childhood made her look 25 years old when she was less than 12, and 50-60 when she must have been 30 or so. I also felt a bit torn, because this book makes it sound like Clara was a go-for-it type of girl, even from her youth, but I had read in other sources that she was extremely timid, to such a degree thaf her parents were very worried about her even as a teenager. That low self-esteem is not even hinted at except by one mention of timidity while she's riding a horse. Other than that, I did enjoy the book, and I learned quite a bit. I would recommend it to others.
Clara Barton is one of the best graphic biographies I've read from this Graphic Library collection. Besides the story and the illustrations, I also found some of the black and white pages inserted in the story narrating some of Barton's heroic accomplishments quite unique. I was surprised by this because it is the only text that has this style in its storytelling and it is a good way of adding more information in a brief manner. It is a great text to use in school.It is also quite informative about nursing and the origins of the Red Cross in America.
The title Clara Barton Angel on the Battlefield by Alisson Lassieur almost stopped me from reading this text, but once I got reading I wanted to cry. Clara Bartonwas a hard working nurse who worked with soldiers to get them well. She won awards for her work. I shed many tears when I read this special story because there's so much blood and dying. I think this book is great for ages 16-25.
