2010 Award
Jack's Path of Courage
( by Doreen Rappaport/illus. by Matt Travares, Hyperion $16.99 Score: )

A picture book biography that gives young readers the story of John F. Kennedy far too brief life. It follows his days from boyhood to the White House. As she has done with her young people's biographies of Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Eleanor Roosevelt, Doreen Rappaport combines quotes from her subject with a narrative that binds the story together. She does not overlook some of the unpopular choices made by JFK, but tells of his successes, as well. Matt Travares's paintings of the president are based on familiar photos.
