    " Charming. A great match of text + illustrations (I do enjoy this kitsch retro trend we're having in picture books right now, and think it's well suited to this particular book). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Marie | 2/1/2014

    " What child ever knew that one of the Presidents' kids was so rowdy and fun? Alice is delightful! This bookis a great way to introduce children to several elements of history. "

    " This book is a great example of how nonfiction/biography can be brought to young children. The story captures Alice Roosevelt's spirited character and enough facts about her to pique a child's interest. The illustrations accentuate the adventure that her life was. As a read-aloud, it should send an older child (even me) to the library to find out even more about this woman and her influence on American history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Brittani Williams | 1/13/2014

    " This book is an enjoyable informational book for kids. My second grade cousin came home with this book and asked me to read it to her. It's about Alice Roosevelt. The book does a good job of showing Alice as a young girl and then a woman who has an appreciation for life! I'd use this in a small group if I was introducing biographies. "
