A Boy Named FDR: How Franklin D. Roosevelt Grew Up to Change America

A Boy Named FDR: How Franklin D. Roosevelt Grew Up to Change America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Franklin D. Roosevelt was born into one of the wealthiest families in America, yet this ultimate rich kid grew up to do more for ordinary Americans than any other president. This appealing picture book biography shows how, from childhood on, FDR  was compassionate, cheerful, determined, and enormously likable. Though he had private tutors as a young boy and later attended an elite boys' school, he played pranks and had down-to-earth fun just like any boy today. 

Kathleen Krull's animated picture book biography focuses on FDR's childhood years through his entry as a young man into politics and his battle with polio. A summary of his achievements as president and a chronology of his life are included. The well-researched text and the evocative illustrations by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher provide an inspiring introduction to one of our greatest presidents.

About the Author

Kathleen Krull’s many award-winning books of nonfiction include two others that focus on the childhood influences of great men: The Boy on Fairfield Street: How Ted Geisel Grew Up to Become Dr. Seuss and The Boy Who Invented TV: The Story of Philo Farnsworth.

Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, a husband-and-wife team, are the illustrators of The Boy on Fairfield Street by Kathleen Krull, My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss, and New York’s Bravest by Mary Pope Osborne, as well as many other picture books of note.
