What To Do About Alice? is a delightful picture book biography of Alice Roosevelt, daughter of Teddy Roosevelt. It makes a great read-aloud and the pictures complement and expand on the text perfectly. Quite a bit of information is packed into this slim picture book with a few more expansive endnotes to round it out though the focus is on her life before her marriage to congressman Nicholas Longworth. I was curious about Alice Roosevelt from my readings about Eleanor Roosevelt. Young Eleanor envied her older and more vivacious cousin for her zest for life. "Princess Alice" was indeed an American celebrity in the days before movie stars. She was a headstrong tomboy and risk-taker, well ahead of her time, both adored and villified by the public.
