I found this book to be engaging and quite entertaining. Even as a young adult, I still enjoy a good picture book. This one is definitely top notch! The author creatively tells the story, easy enough for young readers to understand, while getting all the major facts in there about President Franklin Roosevelt's life and his dog Fala. Since a cute Scottish terrier is the main character of the book, it engages the imaginations of little ones, even though they're really learning historical facts. In addition to the wonderful writing, there are, of course, the delightful illustrations! Oh, how I love all the pictures. With such detail and color, I found myself looking through the entire book again and again, just to remind myself how cute Fala is illustrated! This is an absolutely adorable book, and you simply must read it with your children or little siblings.
