Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the only four-term President in American history, and the man who fearlessly guided the United States through both the Great Depression and the Second World War. Although left partially paralyzed by polio, he persevered and became a powerful leader during a difficult period in U.S. history. This fascinating biography captures all the drama of F.D.R.’s life and times: his privileged, but somewhat lonely childhood; his marriage to Eleanor, who opened his eyes to social injustice; his introduction to public office; his struggle to stay in politics in spite of his physical disabilities; and the daunting task of being President in a time of national and global turmoil.

This was the first Sterling Biography I have read with my daughter and I am very impressed with the depth of the material, while still being interesting for teenage readers. I would not recommend this book for elementary or even junior high age readers unless they have a fervent passion for history. Even filled with numerous photographs, this 119 page read was bursting with information; more than enough for any school report.

Woderfully written, with enough detail to motivate further reasearch, while also invoking respect for the president, and the personal and political challenges of his times. I recommend all sterling biographies. This one is truly a jam.
This is a good book about this wonderful man, he did so much good for

this country.
