Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt's life is the subject of this "First Biographies" title from Capstone Press. This heavily-illustrated book traces Roosevelt's life from birth to death. Along the way, young readers learn about her humanitarian efforts regarding rights for women and job creation for young people. Readers also learn about her work with the United Nations and Red Cross. Overall, emphasis is placed on Roosevelt's accomplishments as a human rights advocate rather than her role as the president's wife. To show the scope of her life, the book uses a graphic timeline that runs across each page, and matching photographs accompany the text. In terms of curriculum studies, this title can be used for units about American history, biographies, or women's studies. The book provides a glossary, book references, and an Internet site for further exploration. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
