About the Author

Elizabeth Raum has written dozens of books for young readers, including biographies, history books, and picture books. She taught English and social studies to students in grades 7-12 and worked as a librarian in both elementary schools and colleges. She particularly enjoys visiting schools and libraries to talk with students about research and writing.

More About the Author

As a child, I loved writing reports. For me, doing research has always been a kind of treasure hunt. My treasures are the facts that create pictures of past worlds and faraway places. I've put those facts into nearly 100 biographies, histories, and science books for young readers. I've also written two picture books - Cedric and the Dragon and The Christmas Star, and several interactive adventures that place you, the reader, inside the story. I hope that all my books lead you to imagine yourself in some intriguing place among fascinating people. Every book should take readers on new adventures in this big, beautiful world of ours.

Happy travels!

Format: Paperback
Won ARC from Goodreads Giveaway.

Gift of Peace: The Jimmy Carter Story is a middle high school level biography describing Jimmy Carter's character development from childhood to his presidency and post-presidential life. Much of the book focuses on the theme of establishing peace, either between racial groups or countries, and how his religious beliefs reflected some of his political decisions in his career. I found the book enjoyable to read (even as an adult) as the author included stories of childhood friendships and political campaign anecdotes that illustrated a more personal identification of the man as a compassionate human being. This religious angle the author takes to describe Jimmy Carter's life I found revelatory and would recommend for young readers as a supplement for secular texts.

Format: Paperback
"Gift of Peace: The Jimmy Carter Story" is a biography of Jimmy Carter, the 39th U.S. president, told from a Christian world point of view (a ZonderKidz biography). Written for children around middle school level, the book starts with Carter's humble beginnings in Plains, Georgia, follows his path to the White House, and finishes with his present life as a humanitarian. The book highlights how the influence of his Christian faith shaped his decisions over the years. Although I am a former Georgian, I still learned a lot of interesting things about President Carter and his family that I didn't know. I normally steer clear of biographies about modern-day public figures, as I don't really want to know the minutiae of their lives. "Gift of Peace" was an enjoyable and very easy read from my adult POV. It covered the highs and lows with no "t.m.i." to distract me. I may start reading juvenile biographies for ease of use.

Recommended for:
*Middle school readers
*Christian non-fiction readers
*Readers interested in a quick overview on Carter

* Zonderkidz is the children's group of Zondervan, a Christian publisher.

NOTE: I received a free advance reading copy of this book through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

I have treasured every book President Carter has written.
This one is yet my favorite in that he presents his life story. I am displaying the book with pride.
Thank You Mr. Carter for sharing of yourself with us your readers.
