This children?s biography is written about the timeline and
highlights of E.B. White?s life and career. It starts with his
childhood, including details about his family growing up, his
journey in school and learning to read, how he entered the writing
field, other jobs he pursued, and notable successes besides those
for which he is typically known. E.B. White wasn?t originally a
children?s author, and the book explains the circumstances when
he wrote his three children?s novels. The impact of his writing
(both for children and adults) is also mentioned.
This biography is divided into brief chapters, one to two pages
each. Pictures of E.B. White in different stages of his life are
dispersed throughout the text, as well as captions for each picture.
Words that are likely to be unknown to readers are bolded in the
text and defined in the glossary. Some of these words are general
vocabulary words, and some are specific to the writing/literature
career. Included after the text as well is a list of websites that could
offer more information and an index of covered topics.
