Great way to make presidential history accessible to elementary students and it's nice how it focuses on his childhood years primarily.

For children though, this book is probably much more suited to their interest level.

This was a really fun way to capture history in the pages of a book. Children will love the fun illustrations and how the story is presented in a way which they can relate to. It is a fun way to bring history to the classroom.

Entertaining and educational look into the life of young Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The illustrations are charming and helped make his family into a group of quirky relatable people. My daughter and I both chuckled over his outlandishly overprotective and loveable mother.
