Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is an opportunity to glimpse the remarkable life of the man who had the longest continuous presidency in the history of the United States. He led this country through the Great Depression and World War II. The inclusion of his bout with polio gives a clear picture of how someone who has what is categorized has a handicap can achieve their goals. After the devastation of World War II, President Roosevelt wanted an organization that would unite countries towards world peace. He died six months before the organization, the United Nations, was established. One of the things I remember about FDR is his "fire side chats." I was a small child but I sat at the kitchen table to listen to him. I did not have a clue as to the meaning of what he said but the sound of his voice was comforting and made me feel secure. When he died I thought it was the end of the world as he was the only President that I had known. The illustrations are unattractive and do not depict true images of the people represented. This title is part of the "History Makers Bios" series. 2005, Lerner Publications Company, Ages 7 to 10.
