Eleanor Roosevelt (Heroes of America: Illustrated Lives)
Eleanor Roosevelt - Heroes of America: Illustrated Lives Author:Shannon Donnelly, Guy Wolek (Illustrator) As the busy wife of the president, Eleanor Roosevelt met many of the most important people in the world. She would travel everywhere. But her heart was always with those who most needed her help, in war or peace, in the cities, the farmlands, the mines and the factories, wherever people worked to make better lives for themselves and their children.
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.
