Biography has long been one of the most popular ways to teach history, and when it's done well, it's one of the most compelling genres for kids and adults. This recording spends about 20 minutes or so on each of nine historical figures, including George Washington, Isaac Newton, Beethoven, and Marie Curie, and is appropriate for kids about 8 and up. The writing is occasionally awkward, but it does hold the listener's interest, as do the three British narrators who share the bill. And in the Naxos tradition, the recording includes a fine musical backdrop (exploited particularly well in the Beethoven section).
