Walt Disney is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language (ESL) or adult basic education students. Walt Disney (1901 - 1966) is a name known around the world. As a boy, Walt Disney delivered newspapers in the early morning in all kinds of weather for six years. Learning about the importance of hard work at an early age, Walt went on to become an entertainment icon. Running into bad times, Walt created Mickey Mouse. After that came full-length animated features like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Bambi. To Walt, money was no object. He dreamed big. Disneyland was followed by the even grander scheme of Walt Disney World, which was completed after Walt's death by his brother and partner, Roy. Lexile level: 490L
