Welcome to Birthdayographies, where we celebrate picture book biographies one birthday at a time. Currently, almost 700 books are included and new titles are added regularly. Search for a picture book biography about a particular subject, or find out who shares a birthday with you.
(Unfortunately, during the recent platform switch, not all book covers imported.)
**Please note that I have a backlog of new titles to be added. If you’ve sent me your book’s information, please be patient. I might be seeking an intern to help me catch up.
November 25 Birthday: THE STREAK: HOW JOE DIMAGGIO BECAME AMERICA’S HERO
b. November 25, 1914
d. March 8, 1999
“It all started quietly like a conversation with Joe DiMaggio himself.” In 1941, the war in Europe is on every American’s mind, that is, until Joe DiMaggio’s record smashing hitting streak begins, and goes on and on.
