What a great biography for kids. Using the text features, this book builds fluency and expression. The illustrations and use of different font help younger readers make connections regarding character traits as well. THis book would likely build interest in some readers to seek out more info about Alice Roosevelt, so that might need to be monitored if the reader is younger, because Ms Roosevelt's later life wasn't all appropriate for students of a younger age.

What to do about Alice is about the story of Presidents Roosevelt's daughter and how many crazy things she did while he was president, something that would drive the president crazy and always thinking about what he could do about her. ( )

Informational, biographical. Roosevelt's daughter, Alice, likes to do things her own way, without so much as a care to what others think. A great story of independence. ( )

This little story offers an exceptional introduction to Alice Roosevelt - Theodore Roosevelt's oldest child. She was a feisty child, very sure of herself and what she wanted from life. She also seemed very sure that what she wanted was not a bad thing, no matter who told her otherwise. While the illustrations are not the strongest I've ever seen, the clear, concise wording makes the story approachable to very young readers. ( )

This is a fun story that's a great read for the biography shelf. It's a good book to read if you're looking for some strong women to include in your women's liberation unit. I really liked this one and it connects to presidential families as well. ( )
