A lively story of the many homes of the Declaration of Independence, which also shines a light on many events in US history.

Well-written narrative picture book about the childhood of Frankin Delano Roosevelt. The text is divided into chapters, about 7-8 pages long, and occasionally incorporate quotes. The illustrations are in a caricatured style and full of personality. Back matter includes a brief biography and a bibliography. This would pair well with "Nice Work, Franklin!" by Suzanne Tripp Jurmain, which covers his political years.
