9781402735455: Franklin Delano Roosevelt: A National Hero (Sterling Biographies)

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the only four-term President in American history, and the man who fearlessly guided the United States through both the Great Depression and the Second World War. Although left partially paralyzed by polio, he persevered and became a powerful leader during a difficult period in U.S. history. This fascinating biography captures all the drama of F.D.R.’s life and times: his privileged, but somewhat lonely childhood; his marriage to Eleanor, who opened his eyes to social injustice; his introduction to public office; his struggle to stay in politics in spite of his physical disabilities; and the daunting task of being President in a time of national and global turmoil.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8–These attractive books examine the lives of the Roosevelts in the context of their times. The clear, concise texts follow a logical time line, and many interesting sidebars and photos are included. The volume about the president centers on the ironies of his life. He was born into position and privilege, yet his greatest accomplishments were in uplifting the common man. Jones discusses the Roosevelts' unusual partnership. In addition to enriching her husband's political fortunes, Eleanor helped show him a world from which they had both been sheltered. These experiences shaped him both as a man and a politician. Both titles have helpful glossaries, bibliographies, and extensive indexes, making them useful for reports as well as for leisure reading.–Tracy H.
