I loved reading about the presidents and their first wives when I was younger so I decided to read one. It's such a new view than when I was younger. Especially with this book, it shows more about Eleanor that just being a first lady, you learn about her as an individual. I enjoyed this book a lot.

This biography about Eleanor Roosevelt was written in an inspiring format. I could picture in my head all the events listed withiin the covers of this book. She had a hard life dealing with the everyday battle of being a policitions wife. She had a hard road ahead of her, but drove with dignity and perserverance.
This book would be great to support the classroom teacher when the US history is being taught.
A scavenger hunt would be great to help the students work with a non-fiction book.
