From Gr. 3-6. This entry in the Spiritual Biographies series spotlights Catholic social activist Dorothy Day. Not well known today, Day lived her life helping the hungry and the homeless and sticking to her pacifist principles, even during World War II. The account skips over her flirtation with Marxism and the common-law marriage that produced her daughter, although the youngster is prominently mentioned. Shaw notes that Day was considered a saint for her good works, though she was still quite human--a woman who sometimes lost her temper and had little use for volunteers who didn't work. What emerges most clearly is the way Day's common-sense Christianity translated into better lives for untold numbers of people. The crisp series design, with many excellent photos and paintings, is bolstered by colored insets that give readers ideas about doing good in their own communities. A worthwhile addition to biography or religion shelves. A time line is appended. Ilene Cooper
