Gr. 3-5. From the Gateway series, this attractive biography introduces Eleanor Roosevelt's childhood and adolescence, her marriage and family life, her White House years, and her political and humanitarian work. Though the writing is vivid, the text would have benefited from tighter editing. There are a few confusing or misleading passages, including one that refers to Theodore Roosevelt's grave and another about Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart's flight over Washington, D.C. Still, Feinberg manages in an economical, candid text to communicate something of Roosevelt's personality as well as her life story, her disappointments, and her many accomplishments. Many good photos appear throughout this well-designed book, which has fairly large type and generous margins. The volume ends with a time line and lists of sources, recommended reading, and Web sites. Carolyn Phelan

Grade 3-6-A chronological account of the full life of one of the nation's most respected First Ladies. The mostly black-and-white photographs on every spread help to personalize the narrative, which contains quotes from Roosevelt, although they are undocumented. Two of the six Web sites do not connect. With so much available about this fascinating woman, Feinberg's well-written text is a useful supplement to collections in need of updating.
