KIRKUS REVIEW

An initial look at the greatest of all First Ladies, illustrated with small period photos and supplemented by sidebars on topics as diverse as Child Labor and the birth of the UN. El Nabli writes in simple language, not glossing over Eleanor’s unhappy childhood, her father’s alcoholism or her increasingly distant relationship with FDR, but focusing more on her long, energetic advocacy of social issues, and particularly her involvement in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A brief interview with an ER scholar closes this inspirational mini-portrait. Invitingly designed as well as reasonably frank, it makes an appealing, if superfluous, alternative to the plethora of similar profiles for this audience. (Biography. 9-11)
