Publisher Description

For a long time, the main role of First Ladies was to act as hostesses of the White House...until Eleanor Roosevelt.  Born in 1884, Eleanor was not satisfied to just be a glorified hostess for her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  Eleanor had a voice, and she used it to speak up against poverty and racism.  She had experience and knowledge of many issues, and fought for laws to help the less fortunate.  She had passion, energy, and a way of speaking that made people listen, and she used these gifts to campaign for her husband and get him elected president-four times!  A fascinating historical figure in her own right, Eleanor Roosevelt changed the role of First Lady forever.

badddddddddddddddd ,

Who was Eleanor Roosevelt?

This book was a very interesting to me. One reason why it was interesting is that a lot of bad things go on in her life. Many people die,Eleanor has some sad moments in her life. Eleanor is strong to get through it.
