Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Newbery Medalist uses more than 100 archival prints and photographs to enhance this engrossing, accessible biography of our 32nd president. Ages 9-up.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8 --As in Lincoln: A Photobiography (Clarion, 1987), Freedman has taken a larger-than-life historical figure about whom innumerable volumes have been written and has retold the story of one man's life in the context of his times. The carefully researched, highly readable text and extremely effective coordination of black-and-white photographs chronicle Roosevelt's priviledged youth, his early influences, and his maturation. Drawing on first-hand observations of his family, friends, and enemies, as well as Roosevelt's own diary entries, Freedman formulates a composite picture of a complex, enigmatic individual and a consummate politician. Roosevelt's public career is given further significance because of the cataclysmic events of the Depression and the tumultuous war years during his presidency. As controversial as many of his programs and policies were or have come to be, no one could ever call to question his dedication, his initiative, or the energy he brought to the job. His all too human shortcomings are just as clearly delineated. Even students with little or no background in American history will find this an intriguing and inspirational human portrait.

Excellent!!! This author has done a great job on every book I have read so far from him. Eleanor Roosevelt, Freedom Walkers, Children of the Depression, Crazy Horse, all top notch. I would recomend everyone to read any of these books. Prior to Freedman's F.D.R. book, I have read a full length in depth biography of F.D.R. by Robert Dallek, very detailed but long. So I was very excited to read Russell Friedman's book afterwords to recap what I already knew. Friedman did a wonderful F.D.R. summary on a very long and complicated Presidential Campaign. I suggest to read his Eleanor book right after the F.D.R. Book.

Great books to read out loud to a child or adult audience!
