On April 23, 1928 Shirley Temple was born. One day, when Shirleywas three and a half years old, about two hundred children gathered at her danceschool to audition for a movie. Shirley raced out onto the brightly lit stageand got the part in the movie series Baby Burlesks. For the next two years,Shirley sang her songs and danced in this movie.
Her mother didn’t like thatShirley was always doing the same thing. A big movie company called Fox, hiredShirley and started making movies just for her.
Shirley became the most popular star in the movies. Everyone likedher movies because the movies made them feel really good inside. Shirley madealot of money making movies and she loved acting.
When Shirley started getting older, the movies became more serious.
The audiences didn’t like Shirley in these kinds of movies and she became lesspopular.
Shirley liked to be competitive in everything. She decided to bethe first person in her class to become engaged. On September 19, 1945 Shirleymarried John Black and 12,000 people waited outside the church to see her.
When Shirley stopped making movies, she got busy with politics.

Shirley is a kind and gentle girl to other people. She is specialto me because she is a good friend to people if they are sad or feeling bad.
She enjoys everything she does and always wants to do it well. That’s what’sspecial to me.
I enjoyed half of the book. The beginning was wonderful, but theend was a little bit boring. I would recommend this book to other childrenbecause it is fun and interesting to read about famous people. Also, many ofher movies we can rent and it is interesting to know about actors.
