Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The strength of this profile is the author's innate ability to pick out just the right facts and anecdotes about Roosevelt to interest young readers. Green introduces the Bully Pulpit President as a sickly child with a sense of mischief and quickly chronicles his youth, education, marriage and the untimely death of his first wife. Following this recitation of standard biographical information, the author picks up the threads of his political life. Young readers will be fascinated by TR's affectionate name as the Bully Pulpit President and by focusing of his accomplishments in the areas of trust busting, land preservation, safety standards in industry, and his efforts to regulate the safe production of food and medicine, they discover just how appropriate the appellation was. Today's youth, weaned on media, learn that this was the president who most effectively used the media of the time to his advantage. Well documented with vintage photos, some newly colored to give them more punch, and political cartoons, this book is packaged with a carefully designed layout. The inclusion of "Roosevelt's Life at a Glance," and "World Events Timeline," a comprehensive bibliography of books, web sites, and historical sites is an added bonus. This is one volume in the series "Profiles of the Presidents." 2003, Compass Point Books, Ages 9 to 14.
