Broukal, Milada


Did you know that Jean Paul Getty put pay phones in his guests bedrooms to save money on phone bills? Leonardo da Vinci wrote backwards in his notebooks so that nobody could read them? Pele's first soccer ball was a grapefruit? Pablo Picasso never threw anything away, not even empty cereal boxes? Agatha Christie wrote a book that actually saved someones life? These and other fascinating facts make up the biographies in What A Life! This three-book series takes a fresh approach to making reading both pleasurable and motivating! High-interest biographies focus on less-known facts about famous figures, rather than the chronology of events typical of most biographies. Each book in the What A Life! Series takes a multicultural approach, featuring 24 short biographies on inspirational figures from all over the world. Subjects range from historical and political figures to athletes, artists, entertainers, and humanitarians, including: Marie Curie I.M. Pei Eva Peròn Agatha Christie Muhammad Ali Bruce Lee Leonardo da Vinci William Shakespeare Ce'sar Chavez Pablo Picasso Maria Montessori Mother Teresa In addition to the biographical reading, each short, easy-tofollow unit includes: Pre-reading questions and activities. Vocabulary exercises definition and usage. Main-idea and reading-skills exercises. Questions on detail and inference. Discussion, comprehension, and writing activities. Answers to exercises at the end of each book.Broukal, Milada is the author of 'What a Life! Stories of Amazing People', published 2000 under ISBN 9780201619966 and ISBN 0201619962.
