Reviews - What do customers think about Walt Disney: Young Movie Maker (Childhood of Famous Americans)?

Best young person's bio on Walt Disney  Aug 30, 2005
There are several books that put the biography of Walt Disney in a format meant for children, and this is the best of them. The majority of the book tells what Walt's life as a child was like. The publisher has produced a whole series of bio type books for young people, and has a good formula. They try to put the child in touch not only with the life deeds of the man, but his personality, and how he got his start. In understanding a great person from history, it is tremendously useful to know not just what he did, but why he did it. Who and what influenced this person. What was he like as a kid himself? Without these it is hard for a kid to connect to the historical figure, and this book accomplishes it very well. I highly reccommend! For a good adult bio, check the Bob Thomas book, or the Amy Boothe book.
Walt Disney  Aug 10, 2005
Walt disney had an exciting childhood not to mention adult career. My children loved reading this book and having it read to them prior to visiting Disney World.
A witty young one  Dec 31, 2004
I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought that Walter was a very intelegent young person. I thought Marie Hammontree did an excelent job at making a usual boring biography into an intresting tale.I wish that there where many more pages in the book so I could read more and more about Walt Disney. I thought that Marie made him sound like a very lively young child. I thought that Walt was a very big risk taker. I would have hoped that the book would have had more information and details though. all in all I thought that this was a great book.
I hope more people read this exciting book.  Jan 13, 1999
This book was enjoyable. Marie Hammontree described how a person can be a big success while being a little poor. It shows the ups and downs of Disney's life. She describes what it took to get to the top of his career. This book tells who he was inspired by and how they helped him. She told me his problems in his life and how they were solved. It gave me the puzzle pieces to his life so I could better understand it. All in all I think it was a really informative book.
