Franklin Delano Roosevelt Wwii American President Photo History Biography

Franklin Delano Rooseveltby Russell Freedman

Grade: 6 - 8

Summary:

As in Lincoln: A Photobiography, Newbery Award Winner Russell Freedman has gifted us with another memorable biography. Roosevelt, the man, emerges forcefully throughout the book. His confidence and vigor allow readers to see why he was able to lead us through a severe Depression and a devastating world war so successfully. Although he was crippled by polio in 1921, he led such an active life that the public never knew how handicapped he really was. Children will meet a likeable, down-to-earth, yet complex man who understood the meaning of 'leadership.'

The carefully researched, highly readable text and extremely effective coordination of black-and-white photographs chronicle Roosevelt's priviledged youth, his early influences, and his maturation. Drawing on first-hand observations of his family, friends, and enemies, as well as Roosevelt's own diary entries, Freedman formulates a composite picture of a complex, enigmatic individual and a consummate politician. Roosevelt's public career is given further significance because of the cataclysmic events of the Depression and the tumultuous war years during his presidency. As controversial as many of his programs and policies were or have come to be, no one could ever call to question his dedication, his initiative, or the energy he brought to the job.
