Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Franklin D. Roosevelt was one of the most powerful and popular US presidents. He was the only one to serve 12 years and was elected four times. As the leader of the nation, he saw the country through an economic depression and World War II. Through primary sources, personal and political writings, and quotations, readers will become familiar with the man behind the famous name, from his early life to his momentous presidency. This book is a unique way to examine US history in the early twentieth century through the biography of one remarkable man.

Category Description for Eyewitness to History:

What makes these books not "just another biography series for young readers"? Photos! These books utilize photos as much as possible (instead of the more typical illustrations) and also incorporates lots of direct quotes. The end result is meeting and getting to know a historically famous person through his/her early life and public/personal challenges, trials, and victories. We rejoice to read of Thomas Jefferson's confession "I cannot live without books," but may be a little more concerned to know that he considered "a little rebellion (speaking of Shay's Rebellion) now and then a good thing. It's the medicine necessary for the sound health of government." This series will introduce young readers to noted public figures in a personal way: tracing through the major events in their lives, providing insight into their behind-the-scenes thoughts and opinions. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
