  1. 1. A Boy Named FDR: How Franklin D. Roosevelt Grew Up to Change America 0375857168 Synopsis Franklin D. Roosevelt was born into one of the wealthiest families in America, yet this ultimate rich kid grew up to do more for ordinary Americans than any other president. This appealing picture book biography shows how, from childhood on, FDR was compassionate, cheerful, determined, and enormously likable. Though he had private tutors as a young boy and later attended a
  2. 2. REVIEW #1 A wonderful biography about Franklin D. Roosevelt. This was intended for older children to read. The book goes to explain how this boy who had it all ended up doing so much good for America. It is his story about how he became and preformed his presidential tasks being the thirty-second president of the United States of America. During two of the most toughest times in this country, World War II and The Great Depression, he reached out and helped as many people that he could.I love how the pictures in this book are painting like and very detailed. They are also bright in color and fun for children. One most pages, the words are on one side and the pictures relating to it are on the other. I dislike this format for children which is the only reason I didn't rate it five stars. The book would best be used in the classroom when discussing the Presidents. This would also be a great book for a school aged child to use to do a report on the thirty-second president. I really enjoyed how this book took a lot of time to explore his childhood and not just his term in office. Reading it gave me a new found respect for Roosevelt.
  3. 3. REVIEW #2 This is definitely a children book, but nonetheless it does an excellent job of highlighting some great aspects of FDR. It highlights the youth; his youth was filled with wealth because his family is part of the Roosevelt dynasty. His family didn't let that affect his ego; FDR helped the poor and less fortunate. James and Sara Roosevelt, his parents, raised him to be knowledgeable on all topics. FDR knew French and German, which seems like a common thing for the wealthy because his future wife, Eleanor, was also taught this growing up. Eleanor is also his cousin, if anyone is curious. FDR grew grew up to love politics because his relative Theodore Roosevelt was a great president. FDR spent years after graduating from Harvard replicating his relative Theodore's politic success. Unfortunately, FDR almost stopped when he was diagnosed with polio - a disease back then that was not curable, but now has a vaccine. FDR beat the disease and was encouraged by his wife Eleanor to continue. This led to his eventual presidential election that lasted four terms. During his presidency he was faced with two great crisis - the great depression and world war I I. The USA overcame the great depression because FDR devised the New Deal, which created a safety net a segment of the population and programs that created jobs. This book is a good, quick overview of FDR, but make sure to read more on him to understand further what he did during his presidency.
