Synopsis: In the tradition of her award-winning Emily, two-time Caldecott winner Barbara cooney presents a lively, moving portrait of one of our most beloved First Ladies. With meticulous research and clarity of vision, Cooney recreates the worlds that shaped the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, from the daunting grandeur of a 19th century ballroom to the simple humanity revealed at a Christmas dinner for the poor. Full color.

Review: Award-winning author Cooney presents a well-researched and poignant storybook biography of Eleanor Roosevelt's childhood. The wartime First Lady of the New Deal, who became one of the most beloved Americans for her empathy with the downtrodden, was famously unglamorous and plain in looks, even as a child. Her beautiful and awful mother humiliated the little girl, calling her Granny, "because she is so funny and old-fashioned looking." Orphaned at nine the girl eventually found her way to confidence, helped initially by a boarding-school headmistress. The book mentions only briefly Roosevelt's later achievements, so a parent will have to supply a little context for this tale of an ugly duckling who turns into, not a swan, but a fulfilled and happy duck.
