This Time For Kids biography is nowhere near as informative as the afore-reviewed Eleanor Roosevelt, but it nevertheless relates many of the most important facts from Eleanor’s life and flanks the text with authentic photographs and infoboxes.
FDR’s New Deal is mentioned in glowing terms, as is Eleanor’s involvement in the Women’s Rights movement.
The fact of Roosevelt’s infidelity is not mentioned, only that the Roosevelts began to view themselves more as friends than as husband and wife.
Conclusion. A fine introduction for earlier readers. Slightly more advanced students will want to read Eleanor Roosevelt by Kem Knapp Sawyer.
