She was the longest-serving first lady of the United States, but Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962) was also a politician, activist, and diplomat. Though now seen as a cultural icon, she was a woman who was deeply insecure about her looks and her role in the world. Eleanor Roosevelt was a protector and advocate for those without a voice, speaking out on the labor movement and civil rights, and this biography gives readers 9 to 12 a fresh perspective on her achievements. Illustrated with photographs throughout, the book includes an excerpt of one of her speeches and a timeline of her life.
