Chronicles the life of Eleanor Roosevelt, from her birth to wealthy parents, to her marriage to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to her role as a wife, mother, first lady, and diplomat.

"Many children´s book writers have written biographies of Eleanor Roosevelt, but I don´t know of any that illuminated so many different facets of this remarkable woman´s life and activities."
-- James Cross Giblin, winner of the Robert F. Sibert Award and author of The Amazing Life of Benjamin Franklin

Candace Fleming is the acclaimed author of numerous books for children, including Ben Franklin’s Almanac, an ALA Notable Book and an ALA Best Book for Young Adults; as well as Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!; Gabriella’s Song; and When Agnes Caws; all ALA Notable Books. She lives in a suburb of Chicago.


Told in a unique "scrapbook" style, this biography presents Eleanor Roosevelt in her many roles: wife and mother, United Nations delegate, Junior Literary Guild board member, children's author, and civil rights crusader. Photos.

No matter how the question is answered, one thing is clear: There has hardly been a life in the last century that Eleanor Roosevelt has not affected, in one way or another. From securing safe, low-cost housing for Kentucky´s poor, to helping her grandchildren hang a tire swing on the White House´s south lawn, to representing America as the first female delegate to the United Nations, Eleanor rarely kept a second of her life for herself -- and she wouldn´t have had it any other way.
In this stunning "scrapbook" biography, Candace Fleming, author of the acclaimed Ben Franklin´s Almanac, turns her keen eye to our nation´s premier First Lady. Filled with photographs of everything from Eleanor´s speech at the 1940 Democratic National Convention to her high school report card, as well as fascinating stories about life in and out of the White House, Our Eleanor gives us a remarkable perspective on a remarkable woman, and presents to a new generation an Eleanor to call its own.
