Bono Bios For Young Readers

Are your young kids now “stuck in a moment” at home, looking for more to read? Why not introduce them to your favorite rock star activist? And if you’re doing the homeschooling, with this mini-library of seven choices you could even create a whole lesson unit on Bono for young readers.

  • Tell someone three things you learned about Bono from this book.
  • Compare and contrast two biographies of Bono. Which one did you like better and why?
  • What makes Bono want to help people who are hungry, sick, or treated unfairly?
  • Try writing a song about something you can do to help someone else.
  • You get the idea …

If your child reads one of these books and wants to write a super short book report, I’d love to publish it on this site for others to read. Really! Contact me if you are interested.

All of these books are still in print and available for order online. They are listed below with complete bibliographic details. They are also listed on the U2 Studies Bibliography, along with 100+ resources for fans, students, and scholars of U2.

If you are looking for a high school reading level book on Bono or U2, I suggest the two books by David Kootnikoff on the bibliography. (However, there are very few pictures in those books!)

An excellent, well-researched introduction to U2 for an adult reader is Timothy D. Neufeld’s U2: Rock ‘n’ Roll to Change the World.
