About this product
- DescriptionPresident Franklin Dela Roosevelt s Scottie dog Fala helps run a nation! As President Franklin Dela Roosevelt s nearly constant companion, Fala the Scottish terrier was in the unique position to witness the workings of the U.S. presidency. And w for the first time, the sassy Scottie shares his story with readers from his idyllic puppyhood spent chasing squirrels through his adulthood spent chasing dignitaries around the world with FDR! This entertaining tail (that is, tale ) gives middle-graders a dog s-eye view of the events leading up to the United States entering World War II, as well as a look at the private side of FDR s life in a wheelchair. Based on primary source material, with realistic black-and-white illustrations and an appendix including information about President Franklin Dela Roosevelt, World War II, Scottish terriers, and more, this is the kind of historical fiction that begs to be read by reluctant readers. It s a perfect choice for supporting Common Core State Standards.
