Make Your Mark, Franklin Roosevelt

Make Your Mark, Franklin Roosevelt

Young Franklin Roosevelt had it all! A mother and a father who adored him. A big house on the Hudson River where he could climb trees and go rafting. He didn't even have to go to school -- teachers came to him.

But he didn't know much about the outside world, until he became the new boy at boarding school. He wasn't much of a baseball player, plus he was mocked for being too polite. What would become of young Franklin, even Franklin didn't know -- until he met the impressive headmaster, Endicott Peabody. He expected "his boys" to make their mark in the world, helping others and serving their country. What a turning point for young Roosevelt, who went on to become one of America's most influential presidents.

Make Your Mark, Franklin Roosevelt follows You're on Your Way, Teddy Roosevelt and Take the Lead, George Washington, original biographies by award-winning Judith St. George that explore turning points inthe young lives of our presidents. The lively illustrations are the work of Britt Spencer.
