Childhood favorites.

<< 4.  Biographies.  This isn't a great entry because I can't remember the 
series I read, but after I finished with Nancy Drew I moved on to this very 
long series of biographies for children.  I was most interested in the 
biographies of famous women; and much later, reading about how girl children 
are so lacking in good female role models, all I could think was that they 
clearly didn't know where to look.  I'm torn between wishing I could read 
these and not wanting my illusions shattered. >>

Orange bindings and the illustrations in shilouette? I remember these! I 
particularly recall reading the ones on Martha Washington and Jane Adams. Not 
exactly favorites of mine, but ones I read fairly happily.
