Description
Growing up in a wealthy and privileged family, Franklin Delano Roosevelt would later become the champion of the downtrodden. As Kathleen Krull's inspiring story for readers 4 to 8 shows, though, the future president enjoyed practical jokes and horsing around as much as other boys. The young FDR is shaped by the civic-minded views of his family, his teachers, and his distant cousin Teddy, all of whom start Franklin on his lifetime of service. His struggle with polio is also referenced here, and an afterword provides an overview of FDR's presidency. The oil and ink illustrations of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher capture the warmth and simplicity of late 19th-century upstate New York.
