Because this is a children's biography it only skipped over the basics of her life and so I am eager to read a more thorough look into her life. I was surprised that the book touched on the relationship that FDR had with his secretary and the love letters that went back and forth between the two.

I liked all of the photos. They helped bring her to life.

Therese Years ago I read a biography about Eleanor and Franklin and then followed that with one about her after he passed away -- the years alone. I don't remember a lot about those books, but she was certainly someone to be admired then and now.

Julie Absolutely! I've barely started the next book on her but I'm totally enthralled with her. In fact I'm headed out to Barnes and Noble with the book in hand and I'm going in search of some coffee! :)
