Eleanor, Quiet No More (Big Words) by Doreen Rappaport

Eleanor Roosevelt was raised in anbsp;privileged but stern Victorian household, with an affectionate but mostly absent father and a critical mother who made fun of her daughters looks.nbsp;Alone and lonely for much of her childhood, Eleanor found solace in books and in the life of her lively and independent mind.nbsp;Her intellectual gifts and compassionate heart won her the admiration of many friends -- and the love of her future husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. nbsp; While other young women of her class were spending time at dances and parties, Eleanor devoted her energies tonbsp;teaching children in New York Citys poorest neighborhoods. Later,nbsp;she became the mostnbsp;socially and politically activenbsp;-- and controversial -- First Lady America had ever seen. Ambassador,nbsp;activist, and champion of civil rights, Eleanor Rooseveltnbsp;changed the soul of America forever. In her eloquent prose, Doreen Rappaport captures the essence of Eleanors character and the deep significance of her legacy. With beautiful paintings by Gary Kelley and selections from Eleanors own writings, Eleanors Big Words is an extraordinary tribute to an extraordinary American.
