    Delightful introductory biography

    As 26th president of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt encountered many challenges in leading our nation. However, his first child, daughter Alice, was quite the handful. Obviously a precocious child full of high-strung energy, she was repeatedly involved in activities unlike those of her 1910 peers. She was most UN-lady-like. As President, Teddy Roosevelt managed to handle the affairs of State, but not the affairs of Alice. "Mind Your Manners Alice Roosevelt!" is a delightful introductory "biography" for a child into the life of a really interesting person. Teddy Roosevelt was a soldier, statesman, and president. He was able to bring peaceful settlement between nations at war with each other and he was an early environmentalist. But handling Alice was an entirely different matter. Alice was involved in activities that gentle women simply did not do. She drove an automobile and believed that women should enjoy equal rights as men. She liked pets and even had a pet snake. This short picture-biography about President Teddy Roosevelt and his daughter is based on actual stories about them and is beautifully and energetically illustrated by Adam Gustavson. Author Leslie Kimmelman has presented this introductory bio in an engaging manner that will make the young reader thirst for more to read about both Teddy and Alice Roosevelt. Recommendation: Great historical fiction picture book for the home or school library and for ages 7 to 9.

    America's most famous First Daughter

    Is this wonderfully illustrated childrens book, young readers can be introduced to one of the White House's most flamboyant residents, Teddy Roosevelt's irrepressable daughter, Alice. From smoking atop the White House to jumping fully clothed into a swimming pool, some of Alice's more famous escapades are portrayed in colorful illustrations, many two page spreads. The narrative moves right along as President Roosevrelt tries in vain to reign in his spirited offspring, and by the end of the book young readers, especially girls will learn just because your father is the Chief Executive, doesn't mean you can't be yourself.
