Biography for Beginners, the biographical magazine for kids, has been delighting and informing early readers since 1995. The colorful cover, photos, illustrations, and quotes keep young readers engaged.

Biography for Beginners is written specifically for early readers, not down to them. Type size, page size, sentence length, and vocabulary have all been chosen for the lower-elementary reader. We even include pronunciations for unfamiliar words and definitions of terms.

Biography for Beginners covers a wide range of high-profile people, including children's authors, actors, musicians, sports stars, political figures, scientists, and more. See the complete list of people covered in past issues at "Who's Appeared"!
