Q5P3
This is an outstanding, gorgeous biography but its subject might not be very attention grabbing.Once a child is immersed in it though, it stands a fair chance of being engrossing. With a prelude about why FDR is important to know about, this could be a good teaching tool. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375857168, Hardcover)

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.
