Alice Roosevelt was a strong-willed young woman determined to march to the beat of her own drum. When I read this with my 5-year-old daughter who is quite the free spirit herself, we both laughed out loud at some of Alice's antics. The story will appeal to any child who identifies with the adventurous and independent streak in Alice. The full-color illustrations are vivid and beautiful, capturing the vital force that was Alice Roosevelt, and contrasting this with the achievements of Pres. Teddy Roosevelt. Based on real-life events, this makes for an interesting and engaging read for children ages 4-8.
A sample:"Teddy knew how to handle the Russians and the Japanese when they couldn't stop fighting each other. Teddy got them to shake hands and make up. He got a Nobel Peace Prize for that.Teddy knew how to handle the planet. He helped create a system of national parks so that the land and wildlife were protected.But Teddy Roosevelt didn't always know how to handle his oldest daughter, Alice. He told her that while she lived under his roof, she had to obey his rules. What did Alice do? She simply decided to spend her time over his roof!"
