by Barbara Cooney

The privileged though painful childhood of Eleanor Roosevelt is chronicled with tenderness & care in this memorable picture book

This shy, fearful little girl was orphaned at the age of 9, had a lonely, isolated childhood & was eventually sent off to boarding school in Britain. With encouragement by an inspirational headmistress, Eleanor grew & bloomed, becoming a remarkable, poised, confident woman


Fascinating & engaging. It captures the essence of an introverted & intelligent child trying to discover her true nature & talents

So inspirational. My favourite book

Through everything she endured & helped so many others in the process

Marvelously evocative illustrations. Each picture is filled with meticulous late-19th century detail

A short afterword details some of Mrs Roosevelt's later accomplishments as first lady & humanitarian

Superb. Sure to appeal to youngsters age 6-10

A good role model for kids

It inspires others to be strong & brave as they face hardships

It shows the power one person can have on someone else's life

A great book to use in the classroom because its talks about poverty from a different point of view than most stories
