Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Herbert Hoover was the thirty-first president of the United States. In this series, author Teitelbaum describes the life of Herbert Hoover and how he became president. Born in Iowa in 1874 into a Quaker family, Hoover was orphaned at the age of nine and sent to live with two different uncles. He was able to go to Stanford College in California where he earned a degree in Geology. He found work in the mining business and became a successful businessman. When war broke out in Europe in the early 1900s, Hoover became involved in distributing food to the starving people of Belgium. This work led President Wilson to ask Hoover to head the U.S. Food Administration. This was the beginning of Hoover's career in government. On March 4, 1929, Herbert Hoover became president of the United States. It was not an easy time due to the Great Depression. But President Hoover became known as the "Great Humanitarian" because he always tried to help people in need. Author Teitelbaum does a good job of revealing this president's personality. He ends his book with a quote by Hoover. "Being a politician is a poor profession. Being a public servant is a noble one." Good color and black-and-white photographs accompany the text. Part of the "Profiles of the Presidents" series. 2003, Compass Point Books, Yannuzzi
