About this product
- DescriptionFranklin D. Roosevelt was born into one of the wealthiest families in America, yet this ultimate rich kid grew up to do more for ordinary Americans than any other president. This appealing picture book biography shows how, from childhood on, FDR was compassionate, cheerful, determined, and ermously likable. Though he had private tutors as a young boy and later attended an elite boys' school, he played pranks and had down-to-earth fun just like any boy today. Kathleen Krull's animated picture book biography focuses on FDR's childhood years through his entry as a young man into politics and his battle with polio. A summary of his achievements as president and a chrology of his life are included. The well-researched text and the evocative illustrations by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher provide an inspiring introduction to one of our greatest presidents.
- Author BiographyKathleen Krull s many award-winning books of nonfiction include two others that focus on the childhood influences of great men: The Boy on Fairfield Street: How Ted Geisel Grew Up to Become Dr. Seuss and The Boy Who Invented TV: The Story of Philo Farnsworth.
