Eleanor, Quiet No More
"Do something every day that scares you." Those words are on the endpapers of this striking new biography of Eleanor Roosevelt. For young readers, this beautifully-illustrated book combines Roosevelt's own words with biographical details to show a lonely child who grows into a strong, wise woman. Don't disregard this book because it's shelved in the Children's Room! It's a lovely piece of writing and artwork. This thoughtful book ends with Roosevelt's words: "I have never felt that anything really mattered but knowing that you stood for the things in which you believed and had done the very best you could."
