Eleanor Roosevelt
Eleanor Roosevelt

In addition to being First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt was an advocate for women, the poor and for the rights of all people. Recognizing her dedication to advocacy, President Truman appointed her to the United Nations, where she led Commission on Human Rights. This early reader will engage children reading at grade levels 2 through 5, and would make a good read aloud for younger children.  Eleanor Roosevelt is part of the Equal Rights Leaders series, and this and other biography titles are available through Britannica E-STAX.
