Color Collage Red Courageous Eleanor was courageous in many ways. One way that Eleanor showed courage was that at a young age both her mother and father died. She was courageous because once her mother died she had to live with her mean grandmother who had a set of rules that was not only strict but cruel. For example, it said that warm water was forbidden and in the morning their baths were icy cold. It also said that long underwear was worn from November through April even if is was really warm.
Color Collage Yellow Helpful Eleanor was very helpful to many different people. Someone who she helped a lot was her husband Franklin. One way that she helped Franklin was when he had Polio disease she looked after him and cared for him. For example, in the book it says “I cared for my husband for two weeks long and I would wash him, bathe him and massage his legs.” That shows that she is really wiling to help him out.
Color Collage Blue Caring Eleanor was a very caring kind of person. She was one of the only first ladies who cared about about people’s problems . Therefore, people wrote her letters about everything, such as advice and requests. For example, one of her first letters was from a young lady who said her back was crooked and walked bent over sideways. Eleanor took the letter and gave it to a doctor who fixed her back. That showed how much Eleanor cares and wants to help people.
