This is a hardcover book for children. It has pictures throughout illustrating the story. Did you know Eleanor Roosevelt was born into a rich and important family? She was a lonely girl though and as she began reaching out to others, especially those less fortunate than she, she became one of the most loved women in the world. She was a busy wife of a president but always thinking of those that could use her help, trying to help people make a better living for themselves and their children. My children loved these books.
