Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The book begins with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt: "You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face." The statement reflects the life of this remarkable woman who was First Lady of the United States from 1933 to 1945 during her husband's four terms as president. She actively supported more causes, made more speeches, wrote more books, and traveled more miles than any other president's wife. Her highly-regarded efforts brought her many awards and honors, and she was sometimes referred to as First Lady of the World. The book begins with Mrs. Roosevelt addressing the brand new United Nations and moves into describing her painful childhood. Before she was 12-years-old both her parents and one brother died. The shy, gawky girl was sent to live with a strict grandmother. Although that does not sound like the formula for producing a woman who would make a profound difference in the world, Eleanor was nurtured by teachers, friends, and relatives who came into her life and encouraged her. This book in the "TIME for Kids Biographies" series includes sidebars about various topics, such as "Kids at Work," "Women Win the Vote," and "Women in Wartime." It also includes a time line for Mrs. Roosevelt's life. The story of her life includes the description of so many pertinent incidents that the young reader will come away with a clear overview of a remarkable life. An earlier book in the series that complements this one is Franklin Roosevelt: A Leader in Troubled Times. 2006, HarperCollins, and Ages 7 to 9.

Chapter One

A Voice Heard Around the World

It was 1948, and Eleanor Roosevelt was in Paris, France. She was about to make a speech for the United Nations, an organization that had been formed only three years before to help settle arguments among different countries. It would be one of the most important speeches of her life.

About 2,500 people packed into a big hall at La Sorbonne, a famous university. World leaders filled the crowd. Newspaper reporters were there to write t was 1948, and Eleanor Roosevelt was in Paris, France. She was about to make a speech for the United Nations, an organization that had been formed only three years before to help settle arguments among different countries. It would be one of the most important speeches of her life.

About 2,500 people packed into a big hall at La Sorbonne, a famous university. World leaders filled the crowd. Newspaper reporters were there to write down her words. Hundreds of others who wanted to hear Eleanor speak couldn't even get in! Eleanor was a confident woman and spoke out for the things she believed in. She was a great listener, too, and wanted to hear from all people -- whether they were average citizens or world leaders. But that day the world listened to Eleanor as she made history.

"We stand today at the threshold of a great event both in the life of the United Nations and in the life of mankind," she said. Eleanor had just introduced a new bill of rights that would protect the safety, freedom, and health of people all over the world.

UN leaders rose to their feet.

The big room filled with applause. Eleanor filled with pride.

Eleanor had come a very long way since her days as a shy girl, when she was afraid of just about everything! As a child, she was scared of the dark, of mice, of basements, of water, of speaking in front of people. She was afraid of not fitting in, not being loved and accepted. Most of all, she was afraid that her family would leave her.

How did Eleanor overcome her fears and become one of the most courageous and important women in American history?
