Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
There is no doubt that Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the most extraordinary first ladies to grace the White House. She was also a lady who was very much ahead of her time. What is really most surprising of all is that Eleanor's childhood and early adulthood years were very hard ones. She was a sensitive and lonely person whose self confidence had been badly damaged. It was only later, after her marriage was threatened by her husband's infidelity, that she decided that she would try to build a life for herself. No longer would she try to live through others alone. Eleanor was able to rise above the unhappiness she had suffered as a child and later as a young woman. Although this book covers all the major events in Eleanor's life well and is clearly very well researched, it is somewhat dry in the way the material is presented. We do not get a real sense of what Eleanor was like on the inside. She was a very passionate person, putting herself on the line for causes and the people she believed in. She also was a very brave person. There was no doubt that she knew that there many people in the country who felt that she was interfering in matters that should not concern her. Eleanor took the abuse and the criticism stoically. It is hard to imagine how her famous husband would have managed without the woman who became his "eyes and ears." At the back of the book the reader will find a timeline, a bibliography, a list of suggest books for further reading, an index and a list of Internet sites about Eleanor Roosevelt. This book is in the "Gateway Biography" series. 2003, Millbrook Press,

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A chronological account of the full life of one of the nation's most respected First Ladies. The mostly black-and-white photographs on every spread help to personalize the narrative, which contains quotes from Roosevelt, although they are undocumented. Two of the six Web sites do not connect. With so much available about this fascinating woman, Feinberg's well-written text is a useful supplement to collections in need of updating.-Krista Tokarz, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
